ODBC error on 64bit mahcine

Last Modified: 2015-07-11
Hello Experts,

I released a new build of my application and now on 64bit machines I am getting this error:

ERROR [IM014] [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] The specified DSN contains an architecture mismatch between the Driver and Application

This was working fine on my last build and I didnt really change anything that has to do with the ODBC or anything like that.

        'Look for SQL Engine
            Dim str As String = "DSN=sqlbase;uid=dba;pwd=password;"
            Dim con As New OdbcConnection(str)
            Dim com As String = ("select company from sysinfo")
            Dim Adpt As New OdbcDataAdapter(com, con)
            Dim ds As New DataSet()
        Catch ex As Exception
            MessageBox.Show("SQL Engine not running! Closing application.  " & ex.Message, "Error", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Error)
            Exit Sub
        End Try
