# achemso stopped generic Tables, Figure and Eq. in front of labels

I have the following problem. After an update to MikTeX2.9 (from 2.7) the achemso package stopped working properly in terms of generating "key words" in front of labels used by \ref. I.e. now instead of "See Figure 1" I have just "See 1". Does anyone have any idea what could be the reason for this?

The short answer is that is 'by design'. The longer answer is that achemso used to load cleveref to do the 'auto-magic' change of references. However, this package has some load order requirements with other material, and these have over time made it very difficult to maintain achemso such that the load order issues did not cause problems for users. It reached a point where the only way to ensure that other stuff worked was to drop loading cleveref entirely. You can of course load this in your document yourself, as this then leaves you having to deal with the load order requirements.
