Unexpected Error - Get Data from Access Database

I cannot connect to Access Database in Excel Power Query. However, since I've downloaded this Database Engine (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=13255) I can get the data in Power BI from the same Access file, but in Excel there's still the same error. What might be wrong?

Hello, @mrbartuss 

click on "copy details to clipboard" and paste here using spoiler tag. Run office update btw.

I am having the same problem since mid October 2022. But I am running Microsoft 365 under Windows 11 ARM virtual machine (Mac OS X and Parallels 18), maybe that's why.

This explains a lot. I'm also using Microsoft 365 under Windows 11 ARM virtual machine (Mac OS Ventura 13.2.1 and Parallels 18). I have everything up to date.
