Product: OpenEdge
Version: 10.x, 11.x
OS: Windows
Question/Problem Description
Configuring ODBC DataSource returns error 126 when Test Connect.

Registry Driver and Setup value data portions of the registry key point to the correct location of PGPRO915.DLL and the PGPRO915S.DLL files.

Registry entry for driver version exists in the REGISTRY under:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\(version)

For Progress 9.x the registry entry for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE> ODBC > ODBINST.INI > Progress <OE Version> Driver shows the pgproXXXX.dll
pointing to where the dll is physically located in %DLC%\bin\pgproXXXX.dll
where XXXX is a numeric number for ODBC version eg: pgpro915.dll (9.1D)

For OpenEdge 10 and 11, the registry entry for the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE> ODBC > ODBINST.INI > Progress OpenEdge <OE Version> Driver shows the pgoeXXXX.dll
pointing to where the dll is physically located in %DLC%\bin\pgproXXXX.dll
where XXXX is a numeric number for ODBC version eg: pgoe1025.dll (10.2B)
