      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)
