http://serverfault.com – I've tried to deploy a small website (ASP.NET) which is using an MS ACCESS 2010 db. Deploying the website on the server I get the following error: The 'Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0' provider is not registered on the local machine. Connectionstring used : Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0; Data Source=path-to-db MS Office is not installed on the server and neither is the Access Database engine. The website is runnin in a shared hosting environment, so I am not able to install office on that server, so may I somehow deploy the provider by dll's? Is it possible to deploy the drivers needed for ASP (HowTos)
