Hi Katherine,

Would you be able to post a link to the thread please? Searching for that
thread title didn't give any results, and this kind of thing is useful to
read before it happens (as it probably will at some point!)

Thanks,

Al

Thank you to everyone who responded to this question.  The solution came
from forums.mysql.com, in a thread titled "MyODBC Driver doesn't show up on
driver list."

The problem was with the registry which was keeping several drivers from
showing up.  There is a very excellent description of how to solve the
problem written by Mark LaCroix (he acknowleges credit due to others as
well.)  This post resolved my problem exactly, and it is apparently somewhat
common.

Thanks everyone,

-Katherine

Subject: Trouble Installing MyODBC Connector

Hello List -

I'm attempting to install the ODBC Connector (I've tried 3.51.12, 3.51.16,
5.0.11) on a Windows XP Pro machine.  The installation seems to be
successful, but when I try to add the data source (via ODBC Data Source
Administrator) the new driver is not listed.

When I installed the two different v3 distributions, no path was displayed
in the installer and no option to identify the path.  The installer told me
the installation succeeded, but I can't find the driver in the data source
admin.

When I installed v.5, the path was verified in the installer (c:\Program
Files\MySQL\MySQL Connector ODBC 5.0) and after the installation I found the
files there.  But still no driver in the data source admin.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
