I installed the Microsoft Access database engine 2016 - quiet install (determined had click-to-run 64bit) - downloaded the 64bit driver - it appears in Apps & features. Restarted ArcPro 2.8.1. Reconnected folder with excel table - the error message still appears.

Did you execute the installation process using Command Prompt (Silent Install)?

Could you share what steps are you following, when you receive the error message?

What is the error message (Share screenshot)?

when I click on an xlsx file - the Error: Required Microsoft driver is not installed appears. When it happened the first time I followed the steps to install the driver (see screen shot). I tried again and the error still appears. PC was shut down - folder was reconnected. I did find that if I saved the file as an xls file the error message did not appear and I was able to geocode the file. However; I find it strange that before upgrading to 2.8.1 I did not have any problems with xlsx files.

Another workaround could be using Excel to Table.
