When trying to either access or remove the ODBC driver, you saw either of the following error messages:
- The setup routines for the mysql odbc driver could not be loaded due to system error code 193
- Error 1918: Error installing odbc driver ...
1. Download the zip file installers from the MySQL site.
We use the 5.5 version. Select Looking for previous versions? and download the zip archive.
2. Uninstall existing odbc driver using the Add & Remove Programs from the Control Panel
3. Run the Uninstall.bat file from the download.
4. Now run the Install.bat file from the download.
You should now be able to access or remove the ODBC driver without seeing the error.
