Updates for both Windows 10 and Windows 7 have been released that affect the Jet Database Engine. These updates can make it impossible for Déjà Vu to read the Settings Filenote if the path to this file contains accented letters (which the default path does). If you have been affected after installing one of these updates, you may find that using Déjà Vu is no longer possible because, as soon as you try to run it, you see error messages like this:
The updates that cause this problem are:
Uninstalling the update
Until patches for Déjà Vu X3 and Déjà Vu X2 are released that allow them to work with these updates, the solution to this problem will be to uninstall the updates, and then configure Windows Update not to attempt to install them again. To find out how to do that, click on the version of Windows you are using, below:

How to uninstall an update on Windows 10
Depending on the update you're trying to uninstall, the process may take a few minutes.
Hiding the update
Windows 10 does not allow you to hide updates directly, the way you could in earlier versions of Windows. There is, however, now a tool that you can use to do that.
Here's what the troubleshooter looks like when you download and run it:
And here's the interface for hiding specific updates.
Select update KB4034674 and click Next. Then, complete the rest of the Wizard.
Change the location of the Settings File
Another solution is to change the location of the Settings File. You can move the settings file to another folder (one that only contains ASCII characters in the name, i.e. only English characters), and then have Déjà Vu X3 access the settings file at that location.
To configure Déjà Vu to access the Settings file at a new location, you can do two things:
Change the configuration in Déjà Vu
Close down all the error messages that Déjà Vu gives you, and then change the location of the Settings File using the Options dialog.
Change the configuration in the Registry
You can change the path that Déjà Vu looks for the Settings File in by modifying the appropriate value in the Windows Registry. To do this:
