I need to dig a bit into WMI, and found numerous references to using it via ODBC. For that I need to add "WBEM ODBC" to the ODBC data source list on my Win7pro system.
When I follow the steps on the MSDN web page
, I get to the list of not-yet-added data sources, but WBEM ODBC isn't there. According to MSDN info, the ODBC driver for that should already be part of Win7, but I can't find it anywhere.
When I stress Google a bit, I find a very old MSI which seemed to be part of WinXP SP2 ... I've installed that in my desperation, but it didn't get visible in the list of not-yet-added data sources ... so I deinstalled it because it seemed not to be what I need.
Any hint how to get that ODBC data source accessible ?
