DeviceLock Enterprise Server configuration wizard does not display System Data Sources on 64-bit Operating Systems

DESCRIPTION

When installing DeviceLock Enterprise Server on 64-bit OS, 'System data sources' field in 'Connection type' section is empty, or user DSNs without system DSNs are displayed.

COMMENTS

There are two independent lists of system data sources for both 32-bit and 64-bit applications.

The 64-bit version of ODBC Data Source Administrator tool is started from the Control Panel, so that its data sources are not available for DeviceLock Server (being a 32-bit application).

RECOMMENDATIONS

To create 32-bit application system data sources one must start the 32-bit ODBC Data Source Administrator tool version manually.

Note
The 32-bit version of the Odbcad32.exe file is located in the %systemdrive%\Windows\SysWoW64 folder.
