I found the solution
You have to copy the MS access workgroup administrator file (wrkgadm.exe) and the ctl3d32.dll file from the c:windowssysWoW64 directory to the c:windowssystem32 directory. If it asks if you want to overwrite the ctl3d32.dll file say NO. Its already there and should be good.
What a pain in the ass that was...
it appears the forums removes the backward slashes and maybe even the forward slashes /
