UtterAccess Forums _ News _ Breaking Ace Out Of The Bubble

Posted by: DougY Feb 12 2020, 03:13 PM

The ACE database engine is being let out of the bubble.

Previously, users were required to install the Access Database Engine (ACE) Redistributable (or “redist”) to expose ACE outside of the Office bubble. Upon transferring data between existing Microsoft Office files and those outside of Office, one needed to download a set of components to facilitate the process. 2016, 2019, and O365 consumer versions of Access have not exposed its ACE engine outside of Office, including the ACE OLEDB provider.


It's been something we, as a community, asked for, and the dev team listened and acted on the request.
