When using IDMS Server r17.0, one of the IDMS Server functions is creating a new Data Source. Within CA/IDMS Server r17.0 32bit or 64bit/ODBC Administrator/System DSN “Add” a Data Source, the “Create New Data Source” panel; “CA IDMS” Driver is missing from the list of available drivers. This occurs when either the IDMS Server r17.0 has not been installed completely or something caused an invalid key in the Windows Registry branch.

 The “CA IDMS” driver is installed in this Windows Registry directory (REGEDIT):

 “HKLM\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\ODBC Drivers”

 The Driver installation process is performed using standard ODBC API functions.
