  • Hi Team,

    While executing .mdb file(32Bit) on windows 2008 server(64bit) OS, we are getting 'ODBC connection failed' error message. However, it is working fine for Windows XP(32bit) OS.

    Below are the configuration on windows server machine-

    1. Server- Microsoft windows 2008 server(64bit)
    2. Database - Oracle 10g(32bit)
    3. DSN - created for datasource connection with Oracle

    Until now, we have followed below steps to analyze issue-

    1. Add syswow64 dir before system32 in system enviornment variable 'PATH'.
    2. Install telnet client & server -getting connection failed while trying to telnet host server.
    3. DSN connection working properly for 64bit & 32bit Oracle client.

    Please find the attached screen shot for reference. Kindly assist us to resolve this issue.
