Lab 1, excercise 1 - Can't install Access Database Engine


as it was the fisrt time that I was connecting an Access file to Power bi, I had to I download the Access Database Engine.


The problem is that when I run the installation it says "the installation of this package failed".


I tried both with x32 and x64 engines: same error.


I contacted my IT department - as I am using my work laptop to do this course - to see if it was a matter of authorization and they say they can't do anything about it.


I'm stuck here, hope someone can help me.
