  • Hi,


    VB6 question is off-topic here. Please check this thread: For VB6 Questions, Please Read...


    For the second question, I am not very sure what exactly with your project. If you use Data Source Configuration Wizard to get the datasouce, seems there are something wrong with your visual studio components, you’d better ask it at Visual Studio Setup and Installation forum.


    Best regards,

  • I have the same problem... Win 7 x64 OS only has SQL Server ODBC drivers available and I need to create a system dsn to a Foxpro database. I have installed both the vfpodbc and ole drivers but still no luck.

    This is just terrible, I spent all weekend setting up my workstation with Win 7 but now I cannot perform my job because of the ODBC issues.
