Data import/Load error

I keep getting the following message everytime I try and improt data into Power BI Desktop. It was working fine with the previous version I had but once I updated to the current version (2.88.1682.0 32-bit December 2020) the issue started. Please need help ASAP.


"Failed to save modifications to the server. Error returned: 'The provider 'Microsoft.PowerBI.OleDb' is not registered. The following system error occurred: Class not registered '."

I can get the data into Power Query but then when i try to close and Apply i get that message. When I try to just load the table into Power BI, I get the same message. It is like tere is a disconnect between the power query and the Power BI Desktop.
