  1. Click Start, and then click Search.
  2. In the Search Results pane, click All files and folders under Search Companion.
  3. In the All or part of the file name box, type Msjet40.dll, and then click Search.

Download the latest Jet 4.0 service pack

There are five versions of the Jet 4.0 Service Pack 8 (SP8) download.
  • The first download is only for computers that are running Windows 2000.
  • The second download is only for computers that are running Windows XP.
  • The third download is only for computers that are running Windows Server 2003.
  • The fourth download is only for computers that are running Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT 4.0.
  • The fifth download is only for computers that are running Windows Millennium Edition.
Each download contains updated versions of several .dll files that are included with Windows 2000 and later, Access 2000, Access 2002, Microsoft Office 2000 Developer, Microsoft Office XP Developer, Microsoft Visual Basic version 6.0 and later, and other Microsoft products that incorporate the Microsoft Jet 4.0 Database Engine.

The Access 2002 Setup program only updates system files on certain versions of Windows and to a certain level. The Access 2003 Setup program does not update any system files. Therefore, after you install Access you may not have the latest version of the Jet 4.0 Database Engine. Use the links in this article to obtain the latest service pack for the Jet 4.0 Database Engine.

If you have previously installed the latest Jet service pack for Access or for another application that uses the Jet 4.0 Database Engine, you do not have to install the latest Jet service pack for Access again if you install a later version of Access.
