ODBC Driver does not show after successful installation


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Windows 7 Professional N (64bit)

Description of the issue

This issue has been frustrating me all day, any help is appreciated:

Installed the ODBC driver provided by FileMaker 11 in the xDBC folder on Windows 7. The installation finished with a success message.

But the ODBC Driver simply does not show up in the list of drivers and I am unable to access any FileMaker files using ODBC. See the ODBC Drivers list result and the registry values of the ODBC drivers.

I have tried the following already:

- Restarting
- Uninstalling the ODBC driver and reinstalling and restarting again.
- Deleting the Default string entry in the registry.

None have helped at all.

The following are the attached screenshots, as I can only attach one file here:

Steps to reproduce the problem

Install ODBC Driver on Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.

Expected result

ODBC Driver should start appearing on the list as an option when adding new ODBC connections.

Actual result

FileMaker ODBC driver does NOT appear as an option on the list.
