Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0 is not registered.

Applies to: SQL Server 2012, SQL Server 2014.

Problem Description.

When you try to run a SSIS package that uses a Excel 2013 file as data source, you may get the following error:

“The requested OLE DB provider Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0 is not registered. If the 32-bit driver is not installed, run the package in 64-bit mode.”

Additionally, if you try to use SQL Server Management Studio Import Export Wizard, you may get then the following error message:

"The 'Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0' provider is not registered on the local machine"


Let's try the following solutions:


  1. Install the “2007 Office System Driver: data connectivity components” from here. That alone should solve the issue.
  2. If the operating system is 64-bit, download "Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010 Redistributable" 64-bit and 32-bit from here and install them both.
  3. If the operating system is 32-bit, download "Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010 Redistributable" 32-bit from here.
