View Full Version : DSN not removed

07-26-2002, 12:30 PM

I have a Standard project using IS Dev 7.02. I use an ODBC Resource to create a DSN.
Everything seems to work fine during installation and the program uses it just fine. When I uninstall, the DSN still remains.

I remove the database before the RemoveODBC call. What am I doing wrong?

I logged the uninstallation and here are the lines dealing with RemoveODBC:

MSI (s) (3C:30): Doing action: RemoveODBC
Action start 9:39:37: RemoveODBC.
MSI (s) (3C:30): Note: 1: 2262 2: ODBCTranslator 3: -2147287038

MSI (s) (3C:30): Note: 1: 2711 2: ODBCDriverManager64
Action ended 9:39:37: RemoveODBC. Return value 1.

then further down...

Action 9:39:44: RemoveODBC. Removing ODBC components
MSI (s) (3C:30): Executing op: ODBCDriverManager(,BinaryType=0)
MSI (s) (3C:30): Executing op: ODBCDriverManager(,BinaryType=1)

Thank you,

Just check the Parmanent property of the component with which this ODBC resource is linked. If this is set to Yes then change it to No.

Hi joe,

that is a bug in 7.02. ODBC Data Sources are allways permanent.
Look at the readme from 7.03.

Thanks for the heads up. This was driving me crazy.

Hi all,
I would like to know whether there is a way to have the DSN uninstalled anyway.
Does the 7.03 readme answers this? If yes, how can I get it?
