I have a functioning website on my laptop. I move one of the Projects named DotNetBase to a remote server using Copy Project,
and when I try to run it there (click the link to it from default.htm) , I get the following error.

     File or assembly name Microsoft.Data.Odbc, or one of its dependencies, was not found.Server
     Error in '/DotNetBase' Application.
     LOG: Attempting download of new URL file:///C:/Inetpub/wwwroot/mdscorp/mbarron/northdownriver.com/www

It looks like the system is try to find Microsoft.Data.Odbc.EXE in a Project Directory!
The DotNetBase/bin/ directory has two files
A DSN for Access file identically named exists on both servers,
    What do I do? Thanks!!!

It sounds like the server would have to have ODBC.Net installed on it.

Maybe ODBC.Net installation patches the framework to include ODBC connectivity.
