64 bit Windows with 32 bit Qlikview conflict

June 28th, 2011 admin No comments


If one has installed a 64 bit Windows OS and he tries to use the 32 bit Qlikview 9 application
He can encounter the following error message:

SQL Error:[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] The specified DSN contains an architecture mismatch between the Driver and Application

This means you can’t use the 64 bit driver with the 32 bit application.

The Solution:

One should run odbcad32.exe from the SysWOW64 system folder and create an ODBC (32 bit) link.
This ODBC link can have the same name as a 64 bit one and can only be accessed / edited / viewed via this executable.
