InstallODBC Action

The InstallODBC action installs the drivers, translators, and data sources in the ODBCDriver Table, ODBCTranslator Table, and ODBCDataSource Table. If a driver or translator already exists, the InstallODBC action makes SQL calls necessary for the installation.

Sequence Restrictions

The InstallODBC action does not copy or remove files, and must be after actions that copy or remove files.

The following table identifies the ActionData messages for each installed driver.

[1]Driver description. The ODBC driver key.

Remarks

The ODBC Driver Manager must be authored in the Microsoft Installer package and a component named ODBCDriverManager must be included. The manager is installed if necessary.

To rename the component, set a property named ODBCDriverManager to the new name of the component. If a 64-bit ODBC Driver Manager is to be installed, the component that carries it should be named ODBCDriverManager64.
