ASP: provider not found

We receive the provider not found error after changing a website over to a 64bit server. The application was using a legacy asp connection string .

We had to update the connection string from Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0 to Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0 . From what I was told is that ace is used within a 64bit system.  I am not sure why but it works.
