Hello everyone,
We have a installed client version of Sybase 11 and after installing when we try to look at a system ODBC we get the following error:

"The setup routines for the Sybase System 11 ODBC driver could not be loaded due to system error code 126."
I am thinking that some of the dll's may have been overwritten. Can someone send me a list of the core files that would need to be deleted so we can reinstall with clean dll's or if you have had this problem and know of another solution it would be greatly appreciated.

Generally speaking a clean install does the job. The issue here is whether the 11 client is compatible with your operating system (most modern OSes weren't around when the 11.0.x stuff was out), and whether there are any other Sybase environments on that host which might be clashing.

I would definitely advise against piecemeal surgery with removing individual DLL files! Go for an uninstall, if it will let you, then a clean install.

One last idea - is this only for System DSNs? Does the same thing happen with User DSNs?
