Dear sir,

I installed the MySQL Connector/ODBC 3.51.10 for Windows on a desktop PC which was running Windows 2000 and MSAccess 2003.  I finished the installation of the ODBC without any errors.

I tried using MSAccess to create a DSN with the server by using the ODBC.  After I selected the MySQL ODBC, the following message received.

"A connection could not be made using the file data source parameters entered.  Save non-verified file DSN?"

I saved that non-verified file and the following message received.

"ODBC--Call failed.  [MySQL][ODBC 3.51 Driver]Could not determine the file name of setup library,(#0)"

Of course, I could not connect to the server.  To ensure the server was running, I used MySQLCC to access the database.  It provided the server was running and all the data could be accessed.

Would you please advise how can I fix the ODBC problem?


How to repeat:
I do not know how to repeat this as I did not have this problem with other PCs.

I was unable to reproduce this problem.  Can you let us know if you find a consistent way of reproducing it ?

I installed the MySQL ODBC version 3.51.9 and the problem disappeared.  Thanks.
