Re: Corrupted SQL Driver

Hi Peter,

First of all I want to thank you for taking a time and looking into the
problem that I have. Here are the answers to the questions you have had:

1. Windows XP with SP2.
2. I did reinstall MDAC using two methods:
a) Manually (starting from MDAC.inf and then followed
provided below).
b) Using MDAC repair tool that I have downloaded from macropool

Neither of them fixed the problem, ODBC Manager still does not
recognizes SQL Driver and if I try to create DNS file I am getting the
same error message as before (see my original post).

Hello Djordje,

To understand the issue better, I'd like to know the following

1. What's OS do you use? Is it XP? If so, did you install SP2 as you

2. I'd like to know if you have reinstall MDAC by using MDAC.inf file?

If you didn't try this, please try to use MDAC.inf to reinstall MDAC

If the issue persists, please try to repair MDAC by using mdac repair
to see if it works.

Please let's know if you have any update. Thank you.
