Access Database Engine Redistributable Command Line Install

October 14th, 2013 by

In the last post I discussed installing the correct version of the Access Database Engine Redistributable. One further point to remember is that the x64 distributable cannot be installed in the normal way if the x86 version of Microsoft Office is installed.

However, it can be installed using the command line. This is not a post I can take credit for (I’m posting to help me remember for future reference) as it was first covered by the Dynamics GP Blogster (AKA Mariano Gomez) over twelve months ago.

To installed the x64 Access Database Engine Redistributable via the command line, open a command prompt and navigate to the location of the installer and type the following:

AccessDatabaseEngine_x64.exe /silent

If you’re installing the x86 by the command line, just omit the _x64.
