In order to improve the performance Advance Steel has when running on 64bit machines, we need to install a new database acess driver from Microsoft and configure it to work with Advance Steel.
The database driver is called : "Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010 Redistributable" and can be found on Microsoft webpage at the following link :
Here, download the file called : AccessDatabaseEngine_X64.exe
After the driver is installed, we need to configure Advance Steel to use it instead.
Database configuration file:
- Open DatabaseConfiguration.xml found in C:ProgramDataGraitecAdvanceSteel2010Configuration with a text or xml editor.
- Save the file and close the editor.
- Go to Windows registry editor, key : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARE GraitecDatabaseConnections
