How to get installed 64-bit Microsoft Database drivers alongside 32-bit Microsoft office?

You are trying to install the 64-bit access database engine on your machine that is running 32-bit Microsoft Office (2007, 2010 or 2013) and you will be getting an error message that you cannot do so.

The main reason behind this is that Microsoft does not support the side-by-side installation of 32 and 64 bit Microsoft Office Com Setup or their dependent components.

However, there is a workout to install the 64-bit access database engine 2010 on a computer with 32 – bit Microsoft Office (2007, 2010 or 2013:

Before you begin, open the Registry Editor (type “regedit” in the windows search box under the start menu and select regedit.exe) and check the following registry for the value “ms.odll” is not present. This registry key value would be present in Microsoft 64-bit was installed on the computer, in which case you should be able to install the 64-bit access database engine without using this workaround.


  1. Open the command prompt by typing “cmd” in the windows search box under the start menu and selecting cmd.exe
  2. Type the file path and file name of the 64-bit Access Database engine 2010 install file, followed by space and “/passive” (this runs the installation without showing any error messages)
  3. Open the registry editor by typing “regedit” in the Windows search box under the start menu and selecting regedit.exe
  4. Delete or rename the “mso.dll” registry value in the following registry key:

"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Common\Files Paths"

Please note

  1. If you do not delete the “mso.dll” registry value, you will get a “re-configuring: message every time you open an Office application.
  2. You will need to use this same workaround to install service pack 1 for access database engine 2010 for 64-bit

Some years ago, before Microsoft Office 2010, life was – in some sense – easier for developers: was 32-bit, period. In our days since the release of Microsoft Office 2010, things are a bit more complicated, a user can now have a machine with a 64-bit native version of Office installed as well. In such a case the application can display an error regarding the installation and we just have to apply the workaround to get things fixed.
