Hallucinating that Adobe took out 3 lines of code in the install routines to get rid of all the customers who are using MSAccess with Unicode. By default, this also doesn't work for Coldfusion 10 32bit, but there is an undocumentated workaround by using Coldfusion 32bit given in the Adobe forum link. If the Coldfusion 10 64bit on MSAccess doesn't work, it should at least be fixed in the install routine for Coldfusion 10 32bit.

+1 vote. Bring back the 'Microsoft Access with Unicode' driver for backward compatibility and to cater for languages that have non-ASCII characters.

Cannot get Access to work on CF10 (32 or 64 bit) and I understand that this driver would have solved the problem.

The JDBC driver is not available on 64-bit platform and hence this can't be fixed.

Very annoying, as I'll have to reinstall Coldfusion 9 in order to support an old client system. Not have the Access driver with unicode option means that there's no support for right-to-left languages.
