Unable to update the NT registry. Variable DRIVERPATH is undefined.

May 4, 2010 5:09 AM

Hi All,

 

Got a bit of a problem. When i try to add a microsoft access database to the datasources in the coldfusion administrator i get the following error message:

 

Unable to update the NT registry.
Variable DRIVERPATH is undefined.

I read the following post (http://forums.adobe.com/thread/142416) which had a possible solution for this problem,

 

---------------------------------------

I had same problem with x64 vista found answer

 

Open C:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe and create a System DSN using the Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb).

Then open the ColdFusion Admin and create a datasource using the ODBC Socket driver.

Check the Trusted connection checkbox and it should work.

----------------------------------------

 

Unfortunately i cannot select the dsn datasource in the coldfusion administrator although i did add it to C:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe

Any help would be greatly appriciated.

 

Well the following article did work http://forums.adobe.com/message/1971734 so this topic can be closed.

 

My system specs are:

Windows 7 enterprise (64 bit)

Coldfusion 9 (64 bit)

 

Kind regards,

Nebu
