Getting myODBC 3.51 to work on WinXP. (Currently version 2.5)

Hi,

I'm running windows XP and currently have  version 2.50 of myODBC.  I'd like to try and upgrade this to version 3.51.  As I coudln't find any uninstall program, I just installed  3.51 over the top, but now when I start the mysql admin it shows I have 2.5 installed not 3.51.

Can someone help me uninstall 2.50 or other wise so I can get 3.51 working please?

Cheers

Hai,

You have to uninstall myodbc 2.5 using registry only, there is no other ways to uninstall it.

Check this link. http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=829

Uninstalling MyODBC 2.5
1. Run Regedit
2. Navigate to HKey_Local_Machine\Software\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI
3. Delete the entry "MySQL"

I think you have to register the new version of ODBC with mysql

Can't you uninstall/remove from the Add or Remove Programs.

Start--->Settings--->Control Panel--->Add or Remove Programs

There you will find MyODBC. Remove it.

Hi,

There is no uninstall for it, have looked everywhere!  Have also tried rerunning the install program to see if that had an uninstall option.

Bit stuck really.  Not sure about the register drivers bit, as they would have been by installing it.

ok.. then delete the enteries from the registry.
You should be very careful while doing this.
Go to Start--->Run
Type "regedit".
Find your ODBC and delete it.

I did want to try and avoice registry hacking if possible.  There much be some way of doing it without?  There is another topic with this question, but I can't view it as I'm not currently subscribed,  and as of yet not convinced work to pay for it!

The points should be given to me. He didn't post anything new. Those are exactly the same steps as given by me.

Hai Prabhakar,

>>Find your ODBC and delete it.
Deleting ODBC will remove all the ODBC related entries, and it's not what he asked... He wanted to remove ODBC for MySQL entries alone...

You have to show this that's abug on MySQL, and I've shown him the proper location...

That's why I got those points.
