Hi @Amit Zuker ,
Thank you for sharing the screenshots.
I notice that you mentioned you have installed the 2010 redistributable package. May I ask if you download it from here: Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010 Redistributable? If so, the most important thing is that can you confirm that you selected and installed the 64-bit one? If you installed the 32-bit one, please open Control Panel, find and right-click to uninstall it. After that install the 64-bit one and restart VS => reconnect to Access again.
Please feel free to let us know if it works.
