Installing the ODBC Driver

The 1010data ODBC driver is only available for clients who have purchased API access along with their 1010data account. If you don't have API access, or aren't sure if you do, contact your 1010data sales representative.

With the newest version of the 1010data ODBC driver, both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions install simultaneously. Since both versions are installed, 64-bit applications will automatically use the 64-bit version of the driver, and 32-bit applications will use the 32-bit version of the driver. However, you must configure separate DSN profiles for each version.

For Windows: Once you download the correct version of the ODBC driver installer, simply double-click on the package and follow the on-screen instructions.

In order to install the ODBC driver on Windows you must have permission to write to both of the following folders: The installation directory selected during the installation process contains files such as documents, licenses and the uninstaller for the driver. It does not contain the actual binary files. If you do not have write permission to both the directories listed above the ODBC driver installation will fail.

During the Windows installation, there are two options now available as shown in the screenshot below:

If you connect to 1010data via a proxy server, enter the proxy information in the format given in the installation wizard (pictured above. If you don't use a proxy, leave this box blank.

If you plan to use Stored Procedures with 1010data, check the I plan on using Store Procedures check box (circled in red above). If you're not sure if you're going to use Stored Procedures, leave this blank. If you don't check this box during installation, you may still used stored procedures by using the DSN configuration outlined in the Configuration Options section of this document.

If you call the 1010data ODBC installer from the Windows command line with the /S command it will trigger a "silent install." If you call the uninstaller with the /S switch it will trigger a "silent uninstall."
Note: A "Silent Installation" means that the installer will not ask you any questions during installation. Instead, it will simply install the driver with the default options.

Installing on Linux

For Linux: Make sure that UnixODBC is installed on your system and then run the 1010data ODBC Linux install script. If you need a more customized setup, please refer to the README file included with the installation package.
