How can i connect MS-Access database from VB.Net application in my 64 bit machine?

I can not connect with MS Access database (.mdb) from my application. My machine is 64 bit and OS Windows 7. I have use the connection string as provider "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source= D:\Setup.mdb"

The "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0" provider is 32-bit only. 64-bit applications cannot use it.

You either have to use a different provider that is 64-bit compatible, namely "Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0" (Access 2007 and higher), or recompile your app to target x86 only.

Compile your project to X86 CPU and Install 32 bit oledb provider.
