    Unanswered: ODBC datasources not available

    I'm setting up new computers at work with Windows XP, Office 2000 Premium, IIS, and Coldfusion Server installed. When I try Start > Control Panels > Administrative Tools > Data Sources (ODBC), click on "System DSN", then "Add", there are exactly ZERO drivers for me to choose from in the list that is supposed to come up in that screen. Has anyone seen this problem.

    I try to repair, uninstall/reinstall MS Office but all I get is a DSN error -=

    Error 1919: Error configuring the ODBC data source:
    MS Access database, ODBC error 6:
    Component not found in the registry.
    Verify that the file MS Access Database exists
    and that you can access it.
    Trying to "configure" a supposedly "existing" System DSN in Start > Control Panels > Administrative Tools > Data Sources (ODBC), I get the following error:

    The setup routines for the Microsoft Access driver (*.mdb) ODBC driver could not be found. Please reinstall the driver.
    Could someone PLEASE tell me how to "reinstall the driver"????

    I can't find a THING on Microsoft.com that makes any sense to me.

    thanksk,

    Thumbs up why did it happen?

    Thanks, I had found that page thru frustration w microsoft website. I had to download and install MDAC as well as Jet 4.

    Why did this happen? I've never seen windows computers without ODBC drivers in the datasources control panel.

    Thx.

    The various scenarios that this problem seems to occur is related to non-ms applications installed on the pc.

    Good to see at least you were able to get it up and running.
