You do not state your LO version but a good guess is that it is a LO 64-bit installation. The connector presented in Base only works with 32-bit LO. In order to possibly use in 64-bit LO you would need to use a JDBC connector. Please see mdb files not loading to base for answer on using this type of connector.
