With the latest ODBC connector downloaded from mysql.com
mysql-connector-odbc-5.1.9-winx64., this message appears.

I have tried all the combinations with 3.0.0.138, 3.0.0.148 and ODBC 3.51.29-winx64
I CAN connect to the MySQL data base with either ODBC versions (XAMPP is my local host server)

Worked on XP and Vista perfectly. But not on Win 7
Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1 x64 (64bit)

Seems Win 7 is the problem.
Any ideas?
Thank you in advance
Rob :D

I had the same problem on win7 64-bit when installing the 64-bit ODBC driver.

SOLUTION (at least it worked for me):

Install the 32-bit version of the odbc-driver
(you get the drivers here: http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/odbc/)

Install the 32-bit ODBC driver instead!
