Run the FoxPro install (or the Office Install) and only select to
install the ODBC drivers, specially, the Fox pro ones.

Go to the drivers tab in ODBC and it will tell you the file name of the
MS Access drivers (scroll the right). If you replace that with a known
good and still have the problem, its an issue with Jet, not the ODBC
driver. In that case you'll have to re-install the jet enginer itself
resolve the problem.
