When starting VC++ 4.0 I get a warning panel from the ODBC Drive Manager which says:

  The ODBC resource DLL (C:\WINNT\System32\odbcint.dll) is
  a different version then the ODBC driver manager
  (C:\WINNT\System32\odbc32.dll).

  You need to reinstall the ODBC components to insure
  proper operation.

Unfortunately, it does not say how to do this and I have been unable to find anything in the docs.

Go to msdev/redist directory on VC cd-rom and start setup.exe and follow on screen instruction, it will install ODBC drivers pack on your machine

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

I tried this solution but it resulted in the identical error message.  I did not actually select any of the specific driver options because the pop-up boxes were confusing and even the help files didn't help much.  Is it possible there is a driver that is original to NT 4.0 WS that needs to be replaced?  If so, what is the process to do that?

I have no idea what odbcint.dll and odbc32.dll are.

Are you use localized version of Windows NT?
You can also install last version of ODBC drivers engine by installing service pack 3 for NT.

What is "localized version" of Windows NT?

Re: SP 3, I have been avoiding installing any of these because of reported problems.  I currently have SP 1, which was installed when I got the computer.  My sense is that there are other alternatives I can pursue vefore SP 3.

I discovered setup in msdev\redist will allow you to remove ODBC.  I did that and the problem went away.  I don't need them right now and I can install them later, thanks to you telling me where to find them.
