Microsoft distributed a security hotfix, updating MSJET40.DLL to version 
4.0.9025.0, which broke every version of MyODBC I test with (I have gone 
back as far as 3.51.2). Actually, AFAIK, it may only break the process of 
creating linked tables from MS Access. All other functions may remain 
functional. However, that's primarily what my users need the library to 
do, so for me it's "broken".

Related MySQL bug reports:

On each affected user's machine, replace newer MSJET40.DLL with previous 
version (4.0.8618.0), attached. (attachment probably stripped during list 
distribution). This effectively undoes part of the security hotfix but 
restores the ability to create and repair table links from MS Access 
through MyODBC to MySQL.

Due to Microsoft's file protection system (FPS), you have to replace the 
"backup" version first. The backup can be in an i386 folder, a DLLCACHE 
folder or in several other possible places (depending on the version of 
the OS and how FPS has been configured). After you make sure that MS 
Access is turned off, you can replace the main version in the SYSTEM32 

Check the "version" tab in the properties of each file after you make the 
copy to make sure your intended changes have taken effect.

Last I heard, MySQL was still working on a full fix for the problem.
