    I have Farpoint spread 8.0
    I added this control to visual studio toolbox to use it in my C# program.
    My OS is windows 7 64bit
    I also have office 2013 64bit

    I added the following code to my program in the load even of the main form

    OleDbConnection connection = new OleDbConnection(@"Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=D:\PriceLists\items.accdb;Persist Security Info=False");

    OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand("select * from itemsmain",connection);

    OleDbDataReader dr = cmd.ExecuteReader();
    DataTable dt = new DataTable();

    when I run the program it runs fine and it connects to the access database.
    However, when I add the spread control on the form and try to run the program, it gives me the following error message.

    System.InvalidOperationException: 'The 'Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0' provider is not registered on the local machine.'

    Once I remove the spread control from the form, the program runs normally.

    Can you help please ?

    Spread 8 COM is an ActiveX control and designed to be used in unmanaged environment. I would suggests you to please upgrade to our .Net version of Spread in case you want to use Spread in managed environment.
