Can you upload the installation logs, so we can see what the error is.

Also is the DSN created correctly, with correct permissions.

Attached is the installation log for your review.

Can I also ask, that your Microsoft SQL Server user password used in the DSN does not contain the following:

- (dash)
? (question mark)
_ (underscore)
( (left parentheses)
= (equal sign)
! (exclamation mark)
, (comma)
