Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0 on 64-bit servers?

I am using Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0 to open up Excel files and import them... my question is this:  Does Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0 work on 64-bit servers?

This article describes Microsoft's approach to Jet drivers: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/psssql/archive/2010/01/21/how-to-get-a-x64-version-of-jet.aspx

From experience, we could not find a direct way to use JET 32-bit drivers on SQL Server 64-bit.

Are you familiar with something that does the same? I would need a 64 bit solution as soon as possible...

You can use the JET on a 64-bit computer, but the application that calls it should be compiled as a 32-bits application. JET is not recognized by 64-bits applications.

You can try using the 2007 Office System Driver: Data Connectivity Components. It is supposed to be the replacement to Jet. I haven't worked with it, but from the articles I have read, it has a 64-bit version.
