Hello, I got this error, what is wrong ?
The 'Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0' provider is not registered on the local machine.

Public Module AddExcelFile
Public Function OpenExcelFile() As FeatureSet
    Dim openDialog As New OpenFileDialog()
    openDialog.Filter = "Excel Files|*.xlsx"
    If openDialog.ShowDialog() = DialogResult.OK Then
        Dim excelTable As DataTable = ConvertExcelFileToDataTable(openDialog.FileName)
        Return ConvertDataTableToFeatureSet(excelTable)
    End If
    Return Nothing
End Function
Private Function ConvertExcelFileToDataTable(excelFileName As String) As DataTable
    Dim connectionString As String = [String].Format("Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source={0};Extended Properties=""Excel 12.0 Xml;HDR=YES;IMEX=1""", excelFileName)
    Using connection As New OleDbConnection(connectionString)
        Dim query As String = "SELECT * FROM [Sheet1$]"
        Dim command As New OleDbCommand(query, connection)
        Dim adapter As New OleDbDataAdapter(command)
        Dim excelTable As New DataTable()
        Return excelTable
    End Using
End Function
Private Function ConvertDataTableToFeatureSet(excelTable As DataTable) As FeatureSet
    ' See if table has the lat, long columns
    If excelTable.Columns.Contains("x") And excelTable.Columns.Contains("y") Then
        Dim fs As New FeatureSet(FeatureType.Point)
        fs.Projection = KnownCoordinateSystems.Geographic.World.WGS1984
        ' Set columns of attribute table
        fs.DataTable = excelTable.Clone()
        For Each excelRow As DataRow In excelTable.Rows
            Dim lat As Double = [Double].Parse(excelRow("x").ToString())
            Dim lon As Double = [Double].Parse(excelRow("y").ToString())
            ' Add the point to the FeatureSet
            Dim coord As New Coordinate(lon, lat)
            Dim point As New Point(coord)
            Dim feature As IFeature = fs.AddFeature(point)
            ' Bring over all of the data as attribute data.
            For i As Integer = 0 To excelTable.Columns.Count - 1
                feature.DataRow(i) = excelRow(i)
        Return fs
        MessageBox.Show("The excel table must have lat and long columns.")
        Return Nothing
    End If
End Function
