Does anyone have a list of the necessary steps to get the 17 ODBD drivers up and running on a Windows 2000 machine? I know this is an old version of Windows but it seems to be the only one that will support Powerdynamo. We can connect to the 17 DB with the 12 drivers no problem but we can't seem to load the 17 drivers onto the Windows 2000 machine and use them. Is it OK to just use 12 ODBC drivers against a 17 DB?

It is valid to use version 12 ODBC drivers against a version 17 server.

Version 17 isn't supported on Windows 2000, but I'm curious why it didn't load. What exactly failed and what exactly was the error?

Kind regards, Ian

Maybe it doesn't like the version of Visual C++ libraries?
