ODBC Installation

ODBC must be installed and configured before you install Acu4GL for ODBC. This product is not provided by Micro Focus, but probably was installed along with any ODBC drivers or data sources that you have on your system. For example, if you have installed Microsoft Access on your computer, the Access drivers and ODBC may have been automatically installed.

Follow these steps to determine whether you already have ODBC:

  1. Open the Windows control panel.
  2. On Windows XP and newer versions of Windows, double-click the Administrative Tools icon, then select Data Sources (ODBC). On older versions of Windows, select the 32-bit ODBC icon directly from the control panel.
  3. Double-clicking the ODBC icon brings up the ODBC Data Source Administrator dialog showing all the data sources currently configured for your system.

    If the ODBC icon is not in your control panel, ODBC is probably not installed on your system. To install ODBC on your system, you have two options:

    • Buy an ODBC driver from a driver or database vendor and install it. ODBC is installed automatically.
    • Buy and install a Windows-based ODBC data source. The ODBC driver and ODBC will be one of the install options.
