This new version is the first offered in 64 bits for more compatibility and speed.
IMPORTANT: IDEAL Administration 21.0 64 bits is installed in the "Program Files" directory and not "Program Files (x86)" for the 32-bit version, which allows you to keep your old version and configuration of IDEAL Administration. It is therefore not necessary to uninstall your 32-bit version.
You can check which version you are using from the software title bar. The x64 version indicates "IDEAL Administration 21 (x64)".
You can also export / import your 32-bit configuration into the new 64-bit version using the menu "File", "Export settings..." and "Import settings..."
This version uses the 64-bit MS Access drivers, which means that you need to have these drivers installed on your administration station. If you don't have them, you will get an error message when launching the software.
These drivers can be downloaded for free (distributable) from the Microsoft site:
Once the executable has been downloaded, open the MS-DOS prompt then start the installation of the package with the command /passive: AccessDatabaseEngine_X64.exe /passive
