    [Help Required] Platform Related issues in visual basic program

    Hi Friends,

    I am facing a certain problem in a program that i am writing. I am using Visual Basic 2008 on a 64 bit Win 7 OS. The program i am writing calculates the hash of certain windows processes and then stores them in an Access database (2003 .mdb type).

    Now the problem that occurs is that to access the database I make changes as

    Project (right click) -> Properties -> Compile -> Advanced Compile Options -> Target CPU to x86

    But when i use this setting the program throws a file not found exception when it tries the access the windows/system32 folder.

    So to access the windows/system32 folder i have to use the settings as :

    Project (right click) -> Properties -> Compile -> Advanced Compile Options -> Target CPU to x64

    but on using this setting i cannot access the database.

    Can anybody help me with this (if u can understand my problem)
    thanks in advance friends...

    when i set the target anyCPU the database connection does not work because the jet driver is not for 64 bit systems. But the hash function fetches files from the windows/system32 folder. Is there any way to access the access database using target anyCPU

    But then i'd say your using old drivers to open the DB.. Not the built in .NET drivers...
    Post the code used to open the DB so that we can check for ya...

    please use code tags..
