Where ODBC Connector is defined in Windows registry?

edited May 5, 2015 11:34PM in ODBC

Good day!

I have an app which use ODBC Connector, and it don't works as well. When I trying to access ODBC programmatically, I get an error from ODBC Driver Manager, smth like: " Data source not found and no driver specified, the default "

(my OS language is different, so it's not verbatim).

I changed MySQL ODBC Connector many times, I tried different versions and tried specify driver in registry manualy (in branch HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI). Also, I had tried to track how does it work step by step, and I  stop at odbc32.dll. As I think it is ODBC Driver Manager which can't find smth necessary, but what?

    If you have installed the Oracle Client/ODBC driver, then please create a Data Source Name (DSN) in ODBC data source administrator.

    Once the DSN is created successfully (along with Test Connection), refer the DSN.

    Then you will resolve the above error message.

    thanks and regards
