this does not work because the trc files keep appearing

In Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Services, make sure that your ODBC Agent and ODBC Server Services are started.  If they aren't, and you get an error message when trying to start them, go to Control Panel>Computer Something>Event Viewer>Application.  Double-click on the line(s) for Cold Fusion.  If you see a 430 error ("unable to open event trace file"), go to C:\CFusionMX\db\slserver54\tracing directory and see if you have files with the .trc extension.  If so, delete those and then try starting the ODBC services again. (Source: Debbie Dickerson, Tech Support, Macromedia, August 1, 2002 post to "Unable to start MX ODBC Agent or Server Services" thread).

if u have tried all the possibilities like

restarting the server.
going to administrative tools>services and tried starting it manually and even if it did not work.

then i think the alternative would be to ask macromedia support centre for help or reinstall cfmx

Chk the properties on ur ODBC agent / server & see if it shows this as a path for executable respectively !

C:\CFusionMX\db\slserver52\bin\swagent.exe "ColdFusion MX ODBC Agent"
C:\CFusionMX\db\slserver52\bin\swstrtr.exe "ColdFusion MX ODBC Server"

if not - then updating the path with above & restart ur machine.
if it still dosent work - then try a reinstall :)

Let me know

Have a look in your event log, this should give more insight of whats happening or rather what going wrong.

Administrative Tools / Event Viewer

You can use the event id and search on http://www.eventid.net/ or take some of the text and search the macromedia forums which ussually are pretty good to get answers.

I have run into similar problems installing
CFMX 6.1 on a Windows 2000 Server with SP4....
on a PRIVATE IP SPACE - 192.168.1.1

From an inital install of 6.1 (the most recent download as of Nov. 2003)
The Cold Fusion MX ODBC Server fails to start with an ErrorCode=3059
and the Cold Fusion MX ODBC Agent reports also fails with a
StartServiceCtrlDispatcher.

These 2 failures prevented adding ANY Microsoft Access datasources...
including the CF EXAMPLE APPLICATIONS - the MS Access datasources
failed to verfiy showing the CF was unable to update the NT registry
and that the DRIVERPATH was invalid.

I realize that your problem is not exact, however, you are installing
a dev server with no vaild IP address. I changed my server to a valid
IP - and perfect install - 1st time!

Possible RESOLUTION: give your server a valid IP....

hope this helps!
