+              This problem can occur when you upgrade an existing
+              Connector/ODBC installation, rather than removing and then
+              installing the updated version.

+                To fix the problem you should use any working
+                uninstallers to remove existing installations and then
+                may have to edit the contents of the registry. Make sure
+                you have a backup of your registry information before
+                attempting any editing of the registry contents.
