No. Not that one. Not that one either. I’m actually talking about the CorFlags section in the header of a portable executable image. Wil Peck observed the following error when trying to use the Microsoft Jet OLEDB provider on an x64 machine: The 'Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0' provider is not registered on the local machine The simple solution, as Wil points out, is to change the target of your project to x86 rather than Any CPU so that your build will produce a 32 bit executable.

USB + Drivers + Vista + x64 + "New Hardware Found" Install + KB941600 = Total USB Destruction... To completely screw up your USB ports/drivers in Vista x64, simply INSTALL this update through Windows Update. It will, in fact, give you plenty of problems including the extremely annoying "New Hardware Found" dialog on every boot. Some may have found a "Hotfix" called KB937187.

The problem is that nunit is running as 64-bit. I found this post by Matevz Gacnik pointing me in the right direction to get around this problem. Here is the fix: You can use corflags to find out what settings the nunit assembly already has: C:\> corflags "C:\Program Files (x86)\NUnit-Net-2.0 2.2.9\bin\nunit-console.exe" ...
