After following your steps, I got stuck at the point where i have to choose a provider.
From the drop down list, I could not find "Microsoft Office 12.0 Access Database Engine Oledb provider".
I'm using VS 2015 enterprise edition (32 bit) and Office 2016 (64 bit).
I downloaded and installed "Microsoft Access Database Engine 2016 Redistributable (64bit)" but no luck.
When i tried installing "Microsoft Access Database Engine 2016 Redistributable (32 bit)" instead, i got an error stating i first have to uninstall the 64 bit version of Office 2016.
Could the reason i'm not seeing the provider listed in VS 2015 be that I need Office 2016 32 bit instead of 64? Or do you know of another reason.
