  3. Under "Client Components", run the Jet Essentials installation file that matches your version of Excel.


    Excel 2003 or 2007: run the 32-bit Jet Essentials installation file.

    Excel 2010 or 2013: If your Excel is 64-bit, run the 64-bit Jet Essentials installation file, otherwise run the 32-bit Jet Essentials installation file.

    (not sure if you have 64-bit or 32-bit? Click here )


    (NOTE:  If you are installing Jet Essentials on Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, or any version of Windows Server 2008 or higher, be sure to install Jet Essentials by right-clicking the Jet Essentials setup file and selecting "Run as Administrator" even if you are currently logged in as an Administrator.)

    Only one version of Jet Essentials can be installed at a time.  This makes upgrading your installation quite easy.  By installing a newer version of Jet Essentials, it replaces the older version.
