Preferred Solution: way i cannot create odbc connection on windows 8..1

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Hello everyone
Ok, So here is the deal. I have a My SQL database that is being used with a Access 2003 front end. Its using the MY SQL ODBC driver and a User DSN. I have to deploy this front end to about 200 people and don't want to visit each computer to do so. I need to install the drive which i have built a script to do, and i need to create a DSN. How do i create a User DSN or a system DSN with a batch file with a script. I tried to use a File DSN,Which would have made my life easy as i could just have copied that file to all the computers, But it promoted the user to log into the database when a form is open. Which is no good. Can anyone help me?

Hi all,
I have a strange problem that occur on lots of our machine,

I'm running 2005 SQL server on Windows 2008 server. I have both Windows 7 and XP ODBC connections to the server. Everything was working fine but the server was running slow so I tried a windows update. The update made my ODBC connection go flakey, but only on Windows 7. Testing the connection would be successful, for several tests, then fail and you would have to reboot the workstation. I have both SQL server and Native Client. Now I am unable to create a connection with either. I've uninstalled the updates which hasn't helped. It seems like the update changed a security setting somewhere. Creating a new connection now fails with SQL state 08001 and server error 10060

Regards Hakit

I have the system working now with both Win 7 and XP Pro but not really happy with the fix. The SQL passwords seem to be stored in a different encryption for these 2 OS's If I change the password on the SQL server then let Win 7 rebuild it the system works ,, but you can't use that login on XP Pro without doing the same thing over again.

I'm not sure if i'm posting this in the correct area, but please let me know and I will move to appropriate forum.

I have a application I use that connects to a default ODBC connection "Connection1" which is the production enviroment. I want to create a shortcut on my desktop to point to the TEST enviroment so I don't have to go through and change odbc settings all the time. I added a SQL Server connection under System DSN "Connection2" which point to test database. In the shortcut properties I added to the end of the Target location "-oConnection2" so it looks like this:

I've developed a site www.kitkrazy.com using PHP, Access and an ODBC connection. It works very well ... most of the time.

Every now and again -- say every three months -- the site crashes, and I get the error message ...

Warning: SQL error: [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Too many client tasks.,

Most recently I got ...

Warning: SQL error: [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] System resource exceeded., SQL state S1001 in SQLExecDirect in E:\home\Default\kitkrazy.com\htdocs\include\topthree.php on line 15
[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] System resource exceeded.

When I challenge the hosting company on this they always advise me to use a DSN-less connection. Well, it's got to the point where I'm thinking to myself, why don't I just go DSN-less and the hell with it.

So I took a look. And it seems that I'm going to have to rewrite all my SQL queries and database calls. Unless you know different ...

Is there a simple way to convert all my code from ODBC to DSN-less?


A:PHP: Converting from ODBC to DSN-less connection

You should probably convert to MySQL or a real database if you are having trouble with too many users accessing the database. You may also want to check all of your code to see that it is clean and you are closing all open object when the program is done with them. You will have the exact same problem with with a DSN-less connection and it will actually slow your site down. Rewriting the connection string is the only change you will need to make and if you use an include file for the DB connection string all you need to do is change one file.

We are moving an old Access project from XP too Windows 7 32 and .Net.

However there is something wrong with Windows 7! When I try and create an ODBC link via ODBC Administrator to allow the software to access data tables on SQL Server on the Windows 2003 Server it just keeps producing a message saying the TCP/IP port does not exist or access is denied.

Having tried the same experiment with an XP computer it worked fine, no issues, but Windows 7 strangely doesn't???

The SQL Server is on standard port 1433, I tried turning the firewall off in Windows 7 but that made no difference, when installing Windows 7 and connecting it too the network it complained it needed a DNS address so I put one on the server and set that in the Windows 7 client.

The XP client never needed one, could that be linked to this odd issue?

My first experience of Windows 7 this is and it seems like Microsoft have struck again by taking something that works and making it unnecessarily difficult...

Of course I could be wrong

I have two laptops at my company that have Windows 7 Home - thus cannot login to AD/Domain as a specific user. They in-turn use a local administrative account setup on those laptops. We have a database setup with linked connections to our SQL Server 2005.

Whenever we're trying to access those linked tables we get the following error message:
We can bypass this issue by manually typing in the Login/Password within this error prompt.
What's strange is that we have ODBC setup to use the SQL Server Authentication:
That SHOULD allow us to not use Windows Authentication (as you can see it's trying to use the 'Guest' account on Windows 7. I've tried making this change through both x32 and x64 versions of ODBC (located in wow64). I've searched all over the internet concerning this issue but no one seems to have anything similar. This used to work a few weeks ago and I don't know of anything we changed other than a few system updates.

The SQL Server's Security is setup to use both authentication methods:
Our SQL Server gives us an Error: 18456, Severity: 14, State: 11
A quick Google search explains that State 11 means, "Valid login but server access failure".

Any help please? The only solution I have right now is to install W7 Pro...

A:Access & ODBC connection issue on W7 Home, State 11

I recently reinstalled Windows 2000 Pro on one of my older laptops ,a Compaq Presario 1235. Well, upon completion of the Windows installation, I tried to create a new internet connection using the Internet Connection Wizard. I chose to "Transfer my existing internet account to this computer," at which point I get a message saying: "The Internet connection wizard has not finished setting up your internet connecion. Are you sure you want to close the wizard?" I press "no" but then I get the same message over and over again. The only way to get out of that message is to press "yes" and close the wizard.

Also, I have chosen to use the "set up internet connection manually" option in the Internet Connection Wizard as well, but I also get a problem (a different message, however). I go through all the neccessary procedures, typing in the number that will be dials and username/password etc. However, once I have completed the steps and get to the "Completing The Internet Wizard" prompt and press "Finish," I recieve a message saying, "Cannot create a new dial-up networking connection for your internet service provider. Try creating a connection by double-clicking Dial-Up Networking in My Computer" I have attempted using that advice, but I really dont know what it means.

Any suggestions? Thanks. Also, I use SBC Yahoo! as an ISP, don't know if that may be a problem.

When I search for Oracle ODBC drivers, I can only find drivers for Windows 7. I have seen installation instructions for installing Oracle 11g on Windows 10 (the actual database software) but I can't find anything on installing Oracle 11g ODBC drivers (32 or 64bit) for either Windows 8.1 or Windows 10.

Hi All,

Hope you guys are doing well.
I got a problem when I install my application on Windows 7 and later version.
See the description :
I am using some third party ODBC driver. By using SQLDriversW( ) API I am trying to read the properties.
Here i am using FileUsage
param to do some action. In older version of windows (XP/Server 2003) my application works. Looks like in older version, the SQL API doens't contain FileUsage
value in its payload. That is why my code always picks default value.
Whereas in later wondows(Win7 and Win10) it contains the value in output payload.
I am suspection that SQLDriversW( )
API doesn't return FileUsage string in older version. As per my investigation I am suspecting it is due to the upgrade of MDAC 2.8 to WDAC XX version.
Please help me to solve this problem.

My software creates MySQL ODBC System DSNs...
... except it doesn't work with Windows 7.
It used to work with the previous Windows OSes including XP, Vista.
I've been struggling the whole day trying to find a solution.

*** I believe UAC (User Account Control) has something to do with this.
But I can't disable it as my customers have it usually enabled.
How can my application be allowed to create MySQL ODBC System DSNs and as a "normal" user?

*** The MySQL ODBC connector I have installed is:
and I have installed it logged as "Administrator".
(I also installed my application logged as "Administrator").

*** The MySQL server is on localhost for now... (that is to say on the same host as the application).

*** I've already updated the "Target" in the "Shortcut" tab in "Data Sources (ODBC) Properties" to "%windir%\syswow64\odbcad32.exe"
so that the "Drivers" tab is properly populated, including "MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver".

*** Logged as "Administrator" (which shouldn't be of course: this account is disabled by default, I enabled it for testing reasons), MySQL ODBC DSNs are created but they are empty:

A:Windows 7 - MySQL ODBC System DSN creation

Most likely yes, UAC is the cause of the problem. Changing system DSNs naturally requires administrator privileges and therefore CANNOT be done by normal users, UAC or not (UAC makes this worse by converting admins to normal users under the covers). But it's the normal, expected behavior, as regular applications aren't supposed to messing with global DSNs, and only elevated ones are allowed. Respecting that is the whole point of the admin/regular user distinction. You app seems to be abusing its administrative rights on pre-UAC systems.

First, as a side note, I think using DSNs is a bad programming practice, as it ties the database access to something not entirely manageable by the app itself. I would store the server/database/user/password somewhere else, where you know, and build a connection string from it at runtime and use that to connect, therefore forgetting the problems of DSNs. Such refactoring may be easy or complicated, depending how is the program made, but in the long run I think it's the best solution.

If you want to continue use DSNs, then at some point you must elevate the app to allow such change. I guess that the DSN is changed from a configuration screen somewhere where the user chooses the database, then the whole program simply uses that.
The idea is to create a second executable program and manifest it as "require administrator" and make that program make the changes, after UAC prompt. The main one can call that second passing the data t... Read more

We are working on a domain migration and need to push out a VPN connection (L2TP with PSK) to some field users and set that connection to "Allow other people to use this connection" so that we can get connected prior to login. 
I was able to make an installer with CMAK which creates the VPN connection (which works) but I see no way to set "Allow other people to use this connection". I know in Windows 10 powershell I can do a set-VPNConnection but that wont work for the
Win7 and Win8 PCs (not sure about Win8). 
I've run CMAK on Win10 and Win2008r2 with no difference. 
Clients are Win7, Win8.1, and Windows 10.
1. Is there a better way to push a L2TP with a PSK to clients? I looked at GPO but that doesn't seem to have an option for PSK.
2. Is there a way to set "Allow other people to use this connection" post creation?
3. I noticed a difference with the phonebook file when creating it manually and tried to copy a phonebook file from a working PC to a test box with no luck. What if any is the right way to migrate this data if it can fix the issue?

Runing Windows XP Home

Modem is installed and did work fine previously. Then someone decided to delete all User accounts except for Administrators.

Now when I click on IE no connection appears. I go to set one up and the option to set up a dialup connection is greyed out. The only option available is through the network card. I don't have a high speed line so that option is useless.

Anyone know what is going on here?

HELP! & Thanks.

A:Can't create a dia-up connection

Try a system restore .

Recently I felt a need to change the telephone number that I use to connect to the internet through my ISP. I could not accomplish this. The ISP and I have created reams of correspondence, but I still cannot create a new connection. The original connection works, but if I type in a different number to make the connection, I get a generic Error Message. The ISP has taken the position that the problem "can't" be solved without my having a Windows 98 CD, which I don't have (System Restore Disc, only). With this sketchy information, does anyone have any suggestion(s)?

My brother has just formatted his K7S5A motherboard and installed external 56k modem drivers.

When he tries to create a new dial up connection the dial up options are blanked out.

The K7S5A is based on the SiS735 Chipset and uses C-Media 9738 Codec Sound Drivers.

I am guessing that it has something to do with the audio drivers and the modem.

He is in a different City to me so I cant give him the latest drivers he only has the ones that came with his motherboard and he cant acces the net at the moment for obvious reasons.

Hi Tamarin,

How are you currently connecting to the internet? Wired or Wireless? Have you tried both if you're still having a slow connection?

Have you tried connecting directly to the Modem instead of the router?

I'm cursed with 56k so I took my pc somewhere where I could get broadband so I could do updates and such. I enabled my ethernet card but it wiped out all of my dial-up preferences. When I try to created a new connection the required options are grayed so that I can't click it. I found this http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;320558 and I've tried all of it except reloading XP. Surely, someone knows more than Microsoft and can help me.

system settings/wireless & network/ethernetput switch to ON and then tap on the Ethernet label near the switch, i think this will open the IP settings. wireless must be off.
