Asp Classic on Server 2019 (IIS 10) Access.mdb produces server error.

Had to move from Server 2012 to 2019 (IIS 10), since then the .mdb databases cannot be read and produces a server error:
"500 - Internal server error.
Problem with the resource you are looking for. It cannot be displayed." - no more detailed error message
Installed the Access64 bit driver and
enabled 32 bit applications according to
https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/iis/application-frameworks/running-classic-asp-applications-on-iis-7-and-iis-8/using-classic-asp-with-microsoft-access-databases-on-iis#initial-troubleshooting-investigation

in the process monitor I only found the following registry problem: w3wp.exe HKU\S-1-5-17 NAME NOT FOUND
is this the problem?
What else can be the error? What to do? Am grateful for all hints!

    If the application is 32 bit then you'll likely need a 32 bit driver.

    Might try
    <customErrors mode="Off"/>
    <compilation debug="true"/>
