Hi Allen,

The Xtreme Sample Database 2005 is a sample database (xtreme.mdb) for
Crystal Reports installed by VS 2005 in the folder C:\Program
files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Crystal Reports\Samples\en\Databases. After
copying it, the installer tries to create an ODBC System Data Source Name
(DSN) using the Microsoft Access (*.mdb) ODBC Driver, and somehow the DSN
creation has failed. Either the file is missing, or there is something wrong
in the ODBC installation.

You can try to fix the problem by creating the ODBC DSN manually. If it
fails, as expected, fix that problem (maybe reinstalling MDAC), and once
fixed reinstall VS 2005. You can use the Registry Monitor utility from
www.sysinternals.com to monitor the registry activity while you are creating
the DSN by hand, because the error message (as almost always) does not tell
what specific component was not found in the registry.

Carlos, you are such a great help saying thanks seems inadequate. But thanks
again.

Carlos -

I came across the same problem as Allen on my Windows XP Pro SP2 system. Running regmon, I found this error:

47.61777878 odbcad32.exe:4260 QueryValue HKLM\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)\Setup NOT FOUND
I have confirmed that the specified key is missing in my registry. I tried to install MDAC 2.8 but I got an error saying "MDAC 2.8 RTM is incompatible with this version of Windows. All of its features are currently part of Windows."

What do I do now?

Hi,

HKLM\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)\Setup should
point to:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\odbcjt32.dll

You can add that entry manually but likely your whole ODBC Access
installation is broken.

If MDAC does not get installed, you can try to reinstall just the Jet part
since I think that it includes the ODBC Access driver (at least on some
OSs):
