When saving a package using an .mdb file extension, several conditions must be met.

1.The Correct Format must be used.

2.The x86 (32-bit) version of EQuIS must be used.

3.Microsoft ACE should be used instead of JET (The bitness of your ACE must match the bitness of your ACCESS).

Also if missing, the Microsoft Access Database Engine may need to be installed (e.g., as available here: Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010 Redistributable).




An error may occur that is similar to the following if the above conditions are not met:
