ODBC Error: Configuration Process Failed

  • 1.  ODBC Error: Configuration Process Failed

    Hi

    I'm trying to set up an ODBC connection, to a .mdb database which has the required unique identifier field and indexed fields in it as far as I can tell.
    I set it up using "Machine Data Source" and "System Data Source" which is what I've done before, but it gives me this error:


    This happens whether I do it within MapInfo, or in Windows add new ODBC connection.

    Do any of you experts have an idea why this might be happening? I'm obviously doing something wrong. Using MapInfo v2019, latest version.

    Many thanks
    Caroline

    Hi Caroline

    Can you trying launching the ODBC Administration tool by right-clicking on it and selecting Run as Administrator.
    I found a suggestions for this on the web.

    Not sure if it would work to launch MapInfo Pro as Administrator too.

    Many thanks Peter, that seems to have worked. It gave me a different error when I first did what you suggested, but then after closing MapInfo, and re-opening the database link, it worked fine. Much appreciated.
