Is there an alternative solution to for using Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010 Redistributable?

Greetings,

 

Per TestComplete documentation, my company has been using the Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010 Redistributable software for parsing Excel files with testComplete. However, this software is now a security issue and our DevOps team wants this software to be uninstalled. Is there a newer version or alternative software/drivers we can install that will be compatible with TestComplete? We tried using the 2016 version, but it does not seem to work with TestComplete (the test ends up hanging and never completes its run).

 

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

You can always use Excel itself

Thank you. I have a similar issue with parsing CSV files using the CSV driver . Is there another solution for parsing CSV files or is there an individual driver I can install?

Will they allow the Access engine if it's installed with Office? (That would solve both problems I think.) Otherwise I think you would have to access the .csv files with Excel.
