MaxDB ODBC on Win2000

we tried to install the MaxDB ODBC driver maxdb-odbc- on a Win2k box.

Installation process seems to end successfully, but the driver is not been shown as data source (ODBC)?!

Hence not accessable.

Is there a known issue with Win2k?

Generally, it should be possible to connect as follows:

strConnection = "DRIVER=MaxDB;SERVER=SAPT11;UID=xxx;PWD=xxx;DATABASE=T11;"

Check in folder: C:\Program Files\SDB\ODBC

that odbcreg.exe can actually register the MaxDB driver.

If you get the error 'cannot find msvcr71.dll', get the file via Google and copy it to win/system32.

Re-install the MaxDB driver and you will see that driver has been registered under Admin Tools / ODBC.
