The TASKE ODBC Driver is a 32-bit application which may cause some incompatibilities on a 64-bit Windows machine.

Applies to

TASKE version 2019.3 and earlier.


After installing the TASKE ODBC Driver onto your 64-bit client Windows machine you receive one of the following errors when trying to change the TASKE DSN using the Windows ODBC Data Source Administrator tool:

Errors Found: The specified DSN contains an architecture mismatch between the Driver and Application

The setup routines for the TASKE Driver ODBC driver could not be found. Please reinstall the driver.
