I just tried installing MyODBC 3.51 on my XP sp1 machine (I'm avoiding
SP2), and it worked fine. I see no DSN's defined for MySQL data
sources, but that's to be expected, I think -- I haven't defined any.
I do see MyODBC in the Driver tab.

Perhaps you need to exit the control panel applet for Data Sources
(ODBC) and restart it to see changes to ODBCINST.INI? That's my only guess.

Regards,
Bill K.

Heya John - it won't appear in the User or System DSN panels until you MAKE
a DSN for it.
But -
you don't see it in the driver tab either ? are you sure ?
which install package did you use to install it with ?
and .
do you have admin rights to install stuff on that machine ?
[thats a tough one sometimes] .
hth - mondo regards [Bill]
