NEXT currently relies on Microsoft Data Access Engine 2010. If it is not installed you will be prompted to choose the 32 or 64 bit version to install during the NEXT installation process. This article will help you determine what version to install when prompted.
Note: If Office 2010 is NOT installed either version can be installed if using a 64-bit operating system. If Office 2010 is NOT installed and you are using 32-bit windows you will need to choose the 32-bit version.
1. Start any Office program.
2. On the File menu, click Help.
3. On the right side of the Help section, notice the "bitness" of your Office installation under About Microsoft <application name>:. You will see (32-bit) or (64-bit). (See image A for example).
