Ubuntu – Using Microsoft Access with wine ( MSJET40.DLL Error ) – Fixed

After installing a program that required Microsoft Access to Work, I started getting this error


Fix for this error.

Bring Up the Terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T)

$ wget kegel.com/wine/winetricks


$ sh winetricks jet40

IF you don’t have MDAC, it will prompt you to install download MDAC

Please download mdac_typ.exe from http://download.cnet.com/Microsoft-Data-Access-Components-MDAC-2-7-Service-Pack-1-Refresh/3000-10250_4-10729498.html, place it in /home/$user/.cache/winetricks/mdac27, then re-run this script.

Downloading the file, placing it in the specified folder and rerunning the script should fix your problem
