Hello Craig,

I am not sure if you can use a 64-bit OLEDB driver with the 32-bits version of MS Access, a quick search on the internet suggests that this is not possible.

As an alternative, you can use the 32-bit version of Diafaan SMS Server. To install the 32-bits version you have to use the '/32' parameter with the installation program of Diafaan SMS Server, e.g. 'Diafaan_SMS_Server_Full.exe /32'. If you have already installed the 64-bit version of Diafaan SMS Server you have to uninstall the existing installation first. After the re-install, Diafaan SMS Server will probably indicate that the trial license has expired but if you send an email to '', we can send you an extension of the trial license.

Regards, Henk
