Do you have a 64bit OS? Did you try both the 32 and the 64 bit ODBC app to check your DSN?

c:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe
c:\Windows\System32\odbcad32.exe

Look at the 'drivers' tab and see the difference.

Have you given all users including system and network users permissions to the ODBC connection?

If you look in your Windows Explorer, do you have c:\program files and c:\program files(x86) ? If so, then you have a 64-bit Os and you need to use the 32-bit ODBC admin, not the one in the control panel.  You can find the 32-bit odbc admin in the actual Crystal Reports program list shortcuts...
