No OLEDB provider needed?

I'm researching options to open Excel files on an Azure WebRole. This means that no OLEDB (JET) providers can be/are installed (not easily anyway).

Becasue this library says it is compatible with other platforms I figured it would not need an OLEDB provider to work.

Is that true?

That's correct,

I'm new on the project so I've not tried any different platforms other than plain old Windows but it does do direct file reading, not relying on external components.

Excellent. If it works on plain Windows, it'll work on Azure.

It definitely works on Azure. That is where I use it myself.
