I have a program that installs using a batch file that copies a .dsn file from a network location to "C:\Program Files\Common Files\ODBC\Data Sources".  This works under XP just fine, however the path is not valid in Windows 7.  Where is the new path to copy this .dsn file under Windows 7?  Thanks.

Run the attached .reg file which will add the appropriate key and value to your registry which will default the DSN lookup location to:  "C:\Program Files\Common Files\ODBC\Data Sources"
