Missing ACCDB database drivers
Please explain this one to me .... I am on a x64 bit computer (well, not literally standing on it :) ). And I have Office x64 installed, including x64 Microsoft Access. Using Access I can open ACCDB and MDB files. yet, if I run the x64 ODBC Drivers component there is NO Microsoft Access Database (*.mdb, *.accdb) driver listed. The only way I can get it listed is if I install the x64 Access 2013 Runtime. Then it shows up. Why is it not showing if I have access only installed? Basically, I am trying to detect if my own executable is going to be able to open the ACCDB database OK. I do that by examining what drivers are installed.
I had the same problem on a 64 bit Windows 10 system with 64 bit Office 2016. I was missing 64 bit ODBC Access drivers. Listing drivers (from Python's pyodbc module) showed only: 'SQL Server' 'PostgreSQL ODBC Driver(ANSI)' 'PostgreSQL ODBC Driver(UNICODE)' I installed the Microsoft Access Database Engine 2016 Redistributable from Microsoft's site and it came with the extra drivers needed. I could then list: 'SQL Server' 'PostgreSQL ODBC Driver(ANSI)' 'PostgreSQL ODBC Driver(UNICODE)' 'Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb, *.accdb)' 'Microsoft Excel Driver (*.xls, *.xlsx, *.xlsm, *.xlsb)' 'Microsoft Access dBASE Driver (*.dbf, *.ndx, *.mdx)' 'Microsoft Access Text Driver (*.txt, *.csv)' And I was able to query an accdb file using the ODBC drivers from Python.
