Default Connecting to an access database


We have a customer who is using an old VB 6 application that reads information from an Access 2000 database.

They also have an asp web site that runs as an intranet that connects to that database.

The problem I have is that they want to change their web server to a Windows 2008 R2 server and I cannot get the database to open. The asp site is using a connection string that uses OLE Jet 4.0 but apparently I cannot install MDAC 2.8 on a 2008 server as it has been replaced.

Can anyone help with what provider to use and connection string information?

Much appreciated.
