I'd like to let my users access the ODBC settings in Control Panel / Admin tools while they're logged in. Presently they can access the admin tools, how do I allow this, even briefly. I believe it's locked down through GP...But then again it could be the registry or something else. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

You can grant Full Control permission to Domain Users/Users as needed by using Group Policy under the following registry key, please try the following steps:

1. Navigate to Computer Configuration\Policies\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Registry
2. Select Registry Key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC
3. Add Domain users and grant Full Control permission to Domain Users / Users (Power User is not available in the case)
