Site with Classic ASP using Microsoft Access Databases is not working. I have enabled IIS failed request tracing and got:


FilePath="C:\INETPUB\VHOSTS\DOMAIN.TLD\HTTPDOCS\INDEX.ASP", LineNumber="11", CurrentStatement="Conn.Open "DRIVER={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)}; DBQ=" & Server.MapPath("db/data.mdb")", SizeOfStatement="90"

in ASP_LOG_ERROR section:

Error LineNumber="11", ErrorCode="80004005", Description="[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified"


Microsoft Access Databases driver is not installed


  1. Download and install 64-bit version of Microsoft Access Database Engine package on the Windows server available by the link

  2. Modify driver name in connection string in .asp file


    {Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)}


    {Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb, *.accdb)}

3.  Ensure that 'psacln' group have access permissions to the folder where the engine was installed.
