New clean install of XP Pro. (Yesterday). Disk wiped clean.
XP Pro SP3 installed
Visual Studio 2005 Pro installed
Office 2003 Pro installed
Code from global.asax:
cnx = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.4.0;Data Source=" + Server.MapPath("fcs.mdb")
cn = New OleDbConnection(cnx)
Session("Connection") = cn
Results in the error:
The 'Microsoft.Jet.4.0' provider is not registered on the local machine.
File fcs.mdb is found at C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\FCS\FCS\fcs.mdb (where Server.MapPath says it is).
msjet40.dll version 4.0.8618.0 is located in \WINDOWS\system32 where it belongs and has been successfully registered using regsvr32.
I've checked the newsgroups and there is no solution (other than above attempt) I can find that fixes my problem.
I am dead in the water with this application and it is jeopardizing my ability to roll out my website and start my new marketing program. In over ten years as a Microsoft-centric developer I've never seen this before. Please help. Hopefully there are other
self-employed programmers out there besides me on this Saturday morning. Any help will be certainly appreciated.

Maybe installing this will fix the problem

I had the same kind of problem recently when I installed VS.NET before installing Office. I couldnt find the reason, but later when I reformatted again and this time installed Office before VS.NET, it was working fine. May be this problem could be a result
of some descripancies in configuration. If you don't find any other answer to your problem, then as a last option you can try that i.e. install Office first and then install Visual Studio. But I cannot surely say that it would also solve your problem. If you
want you can try that..

Many thanks to Ken Tucker. I installed the drivers and switched to ODBC so I could use the fcs.mdb (Access 2003) file.
I noticed Ken is in Florida. I owe you a beer, Ken. We go down to Pompano Beach right after Christmas. Email me your contact information and I will make good on the promise.
