ODBC Driver for Microsoft Access
2003-11-12 12:11:15 AM
I am using ODBC to connect to Microsoft Access 2000 databases. Recently, I
have had problems on Win2K Pro and WinXP Pro systems. There, I get error
messages like 'Driver not known to system'. On WinNT and Win9x systems
there is no such problem. On some systems, one can choose between what
seems to be different language version of the Access driver (e.g. Driver do
Microsoft Access or Microsoft Access Treiber). In most cases where
Microsoft Access Driver does not work, using one of those other language
versions will work. On some systems, though, Microsoft Access Driver
(*.mdb) is the only Access driver installed.
Looking at the Registry at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\
does not reveal any difference between these drivers. Also, looking at
Configuration\Drivers\ODBC in the BDE Administrator application, there is no
visible difference. In particular, the same DLL/DLL32 are used.
My development environment is Borland C++ Builder 5.
Does anyone have a suggestion how to solve this problem?
