Post-installation Checklist – POWERFlex

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 not be erased. To recover 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 POWERflex test data. For a procedure on how to test the connection, see Testing a Database Connection.


3. To initialize CONNX to handle POWERflex dates for 2-digit year or 4-digit years, modify the registry file settings. For a procedure on how to modify the CONNX.INI file, see Modifying the CONNX Registry File Settings for DataFlex Year Digits.


To customize how CONNX is initialized, see CONNX Registry File Settings and CONNXCDD Registry File Settings File Settings in the CONNX User Reference online help files.
