Post-Installation Checklist – OLE DB- and ODBC-Compliant Data Sources

The following table provides a checklist of the post-installation operations you must conduct before the OLE-DB or ODBC-compliant data source installation is complete. After each operation is complete, place a check mark in the appropriate box. Each operation has a reference to a procedure.


Post-Installation Checklist - OLE DB- and ODBC-compliant data sources

Check here when complete



1. Verify that the Data Source Name (DSN) CONNX32 is on the User DSN list of ODBC drivers. Click the Start button, and then point to Settings. In Control Panel, double-click the 32bit ODBC icon. On the User DSN tab, verify that CONNX32 appears as both Name and Driver. If the CONNX32 DSN is not present, it has been erased. This DSN is essential to CONNX operation and must be restored. To restore the erased CONNX32 DSN, repeat "Step 2: Install CONNX Administrator and CONNX Client".


2. Using the test data and a utility program supplied with the CONNX installation, establish a connection with the OLE DB or ODBC test data. For a procedure on how to test the connection, see Testing a Database Connection.


To customize how CONNX is initialized, see CONNX REGISTRY FILE SETTINGS in the CONNX User Reference online help file.
