AppFactory Dependencies

When you start an AppFactory build you may get the error message Error 'Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0' provider is not registered on the local machine'. This is because the OLEDB driver is not installed by default on Windows 8 and is not included with Office 2013. To fix this problem:

  1. Download and install Connectivity Components
  2. Download and install Access Database Engine
