If you are using the install script from the CD to install AcuXDBC on Windows Vista and or Windows 64 bit environments, you
will need to follow a different process from the
Installing AcuXDBC_AcuXCBC Server_Windows
process. Windows Vista and or Windows 64 bit environments requires that programs be "Run as Administrator" to install correctly.
Follow the steps below to ensure that AcuXDBC runs correctly on Windows Vista and or Windows 64 bit environments.
AcuXDBC is available for the 64-bit Windows operating system.
INSTRUCTIONS for use:
Run the 64-bit AcuXDBC installer to setup AcuXDBC for 64-bit Windows onto your system.
Note: The 64-bit Windows system contains two versions of the Microsoft Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) Data Source Administrator
tool. The 64-bit version of the ODBC Administrator is located in the standard location in the Control panel under Administrative
tools. This Data Source Administrator is actually a 64-bit driver manager. For your convenience, the installer will create
a shortcut to the 64-bit ODBC Data Source Administrator tool in the AcuXDBC program group on the start menu. The 64-bit Windows
operating system also includes a 32-bit driver manager available for administrating 32-bit data sources. To start up this
driver, you must run it individually from a command prompt or create a custom shortcut.
The two drivers can be run individually:
- The 32-bit version of the ODBC Administrator is located at %WINDIR%\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe
- The 64-bit version of the ODBC Administrator is located at %WINDIR%\System32\odbcad32.exe
The 32-bit version of the ODBC Administrator tool displays 32-bit SYSTEM DSNs, 32-bit USER DSNs, and 64-bit USER DSNs.
The 64-bit version of the ODBC Administrator displays 64-bit SYSTEM DSNs, 32-bit USER DSNs, and 64-bit USER DSNs.
Note: The USER DSNs for both 32-bit and 64-bit will be display for both Driver Managers even though the bit size of the driver
must match the bit size of the executable calling it. This occurs because Windows uses registry redirection for the "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ODBC\ODBC.INI"
registry key. Registry redirection does not occur for SYSTEM DSNs. The SYSTEM DSNs for 32-bit drivers and for 64-bit drivers
are separated. If a 64-bit application tries to use a USER data source created in the 32-bit ODBC Administrator, it will not
be able to load the ODBC driver. Similarly, if a 32-bit application tries to use a USER data source created in the 64-bit
ODBC Administrator, it also will be unable to load the ODBC driver.
