Windows 7 logged on as an administrator trying to create an ODBC connection 64bit RRS feed

  • Question

  • When trying to create an ODBC connection in system DSN logged on as an administrator of the system and error is returned.

    "You are logged on with non-Administrative Privileges.  System DSN could not be created or modified."

    The user is an administrator of her system.  I tried to log on as the server administrator and I still get the same message.

    Thank you for your help
