    Use the ODBC Admin in \system32 or Control Panel, you are using the 32 bit ODBC DSN in syswow64.

    Also, if you are using MS SQL Server 2008 then you also need to install the Client Tools, MS has a new separate ODBC and native OLE DB driver called SQLNCLI10.dll and must be used to connect to SQL 2008. MS doesn't support MDAC/WDAC when connecting to 2008.

    Install the 64 bit Client Tools.

    Thank you

    • Hello,

      When using the Universe Designer on the work station you are running it in 32 bit and therefore needs the 32 bit DSN and client. Once you publish it to the BOE Server then it is using the 64 bit connector.

      So install the 64 bit client tools on your BOE Server and name the 64 bit DSN exactly the same as your 32 bit DSN on the work station and then it should work.

      Or rename the 32 bit DSN on your work station the same as your BOE Server.
