How to fix: MyODBC driver is not in drivers list windows xp


After installing MyODBC in Windows XP successfully there is not any entry for MyODBC driver in drivers list from administrative tools > Manage ODBC


A problem in driver entry of the registre appears in SP2 and SP3, after the oracle driver definition line. I could find the solution through the comments from this MySQL bug http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=5678[^].

I tried it and it works.

The following steps can be use as background for the bug:
--------------------------------------------------------
1.Call "regedit" programm under WindowsXP
2.The registry structur [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\ODBC Drivers]
must export to the .reg file.
3.After then deleted the structur [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\ODBC
Drivers]
in the registry.
4.Edit the exported .reg file, with deleted following line >>> @="" <<<,
5.Save the .reg file
6.Import the .reg file with the registry programm or call the .reg file to be save the
Driverskey

After these steps the drivers are listed correctly in the Microsoft Driver Manager.
