Hey all.
My database wont connect in delphi. I still get the error - "Test connection failed because of an error in initializing provider. Unrecognized database format C/.....(file path)/pat.mdb"
I tried removing the file path and use the pat.mdb in my connection string but that did not change anything

I'm using the Microsoft Jet 4.0 OLE DB Provider and the old .mdb Access file format
I've tried .accdb but the same error pops up on the screen.

I've also tried changing the Connected property to "True" but an error pops up. "unrecognized database format/(with the file path that follows)"

Any possible solution to this error?

Thanks in advance

Tried installing the latest Microsoft ACE OLEDB redistributables?
May just get lucky and it starts working.

Otherwise, maybe try connect via ODBC, if that's still a thing in Delphi.
