Cause

This issue may occur if the following ODBC registry keys are missing:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ODBC
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC
Note These keys may have been removed if you removed a Corel product from your computer. These products include any program in the Corel WordPerfect Office Suite.

Resolution

To resolve this issue, follow these steps to download and install the latest version of MDAC. This replaces the registry keys in question.
  1. Download MDAC 2.8 or later. To download MDAC 2.8 or later, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
    http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/data/aa937730.aspx
    Important Before you install MDAC 2.8, read the release details. After you read the release details, if you are not sure that these updates are appropriate for your computer, use the MDAC Component Checker. This utility scans your system, and then indicates the version of MDAC that is appropriate for your computer. To obtain this utility, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
    http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/data/aa937695.aspx
  2. In Microsoft Windows Explorer, double-click the Mdac_typ.exe file that you downloaded in step 1 to start the MDAC Setup.
  3. Restart your computer.
  4. In Windows Explorer, double-click the Jet40SP3_Comp.exe file that you downloaded in step 1 to start the Jet 4.0 Setup.
  5. Restart your computer, and then log on by using administrative credentials.
Note MDAC 2.8 is also installed when you install Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2). If the operating system is Windows XP, you may choose to install Windows XP SP2 instead of following the previous steps. To install Windows XP SP2, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

Workaround

You may be able to work around this issue by clicking Retry several times when you receive these error messages. However, this workaround may not work in the long term; you may have problems later if you try to run a Detect and Repair or a reinstallation.
