Error while parsing SHP


When I try to use the SHP node in Grasshopper, I get the following error:

  1. Error while parsing RECREATION_Playgrounds: The ‘Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0’ provider is not registered on the local machine.

I saw there were a few other posts that had this and it seemed from those posts that the solution was to install the Microsoft Access Database Engine 2016 Redistributable (
I installed the 32 bit version of that but it didn’t work and I’m still getting the error above.

Is there anything else I could try?
