Where is the ODBC information stored within a SoftGrid package?

There are a few locations that should be checked in the SoftGrid package to determine if any ODBC information was captured during the sequence.

1. Search for odbc.ini: It will be located in the VFS\%CSIDL_WINDOWS% folder
2. Registry: Machine\Software\ODBC\ODBC.INI\ODBC Data Sources or User\%SFT_SID%\Software\ODBC\ODBC.INI

It is highly recommended that you create dummy ODBC entries on the sequencer workstation prior to starting the sequencing process.

If an ODBC DSN setting does not exist on the base Sequencer image and the application being packaged creates ODBC DNS settings, the entire registry key associated with ODBC settings will become virtualized. This will prevent the packaged virtualized application from seeing any ODBC DSN settings that exist in the local O/S of the client PC. If an ODBC DSN setting already exists on the Sequencer machine, only the ODBC DSN settings that are created by the application program during sequencing will be virtualized, and the ODBC settings on the client will be merged with the ODBC settings in the package.
