Which version of Access OLE Export should you use?  It depends.

 

To connect to Access databases
 

If you have Microsoft Access installed, then you should use the version of Access OLE Export that matches your MIcrosoft Access platform version i.e. if you have the 64-bit version of Microsoft Access installed, you should use the 64-bit version of Access OLE Export.

 

If you do not have Microsoft Access installed, but you have installed the Microsoft Access Database Engine Redistributable, then similar to the above, you should use the version of Access OLE Export that matches the Access Engine Redistributable platform.

 

If you do not have Microsoft Access or the Access Engine Redistributable installed, then you should first install the Access Database Engine Redistributable from here (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=13255).  Select the 64-bit version if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows, or the 32-bit version if you are running 32-bit Windows.  Thereafter, use the Access OLE Export version that matches the Access Engine Redistributable platform.

 

If you do not know the Microsoft Access or Access Engine Redistributable platform that's installed on your computer, then just select the Access OLE Export (Access mode) item.  This will launch the version of Access OLE Export that's appropriate for your computer.

 

To connect to non-Access databases

 

Select the 64-bit version of Access OLE Export if you are running 64-bit Windows, or the 32-bit version if you are running 32-bit Windows.
