O7: ODBC Admin of DSN drivers

Hi all,

Omnis 7 v3.8.1 (32 bit)
Windows 7 (64 bit)

Does anyone know why the following will not work any longer:

Register DLL ('ODBCCP32.DLL','SQLConfigDataSource','AJJCC') with return value lvError

We know that when running a 32 bit application like O7 on 64 bit Windows, you have to create DSN’s using C:/Windows/SysWOW64/odbcad32.exe
However, you would have thought the above reference to a 32 bit DLL would continue to work too.
Are we missing something?

There is a Studio tech note for 32 bit Studio versions 4.2 and 4.3 here: http://omnis.net/technotes/tnsq0015.jsp <http://omnis.net/technotes/tnsq0015.jsp>
This also seems not to work any longer.
