Updated OpenLink Release 8.0 Windows 64bit Single-Tier Lite ODBC-JDBC Bridge driver Installer and DLLs

What

Updated OpenLink Release 8.0 Windows 64bit Single-Tier Lite ODBC-JDBC Bridge driver components to enable installer or manual update of an existing OpenLink Windows 64bit Single-Tier Lite ODBC-JDBC Bridge driver installation.

Why

These updated components resolve a known problem whereby attempting to make an connection with the OpenLink Release 8.0 Windows 64bit Single-Tier Lite ODBC-JDBC Bridge driver to the latest versions of applications like Excel, Visual Studio SSIS, PowerBI and others results in the error ODBC: ERROR [IM003] Specified driver could not be loade due to system error 1114.

How

An updated Windows 64bit Single-Tier Lite ODBC-JDBC Bridge installer with a fix for this issue is now available.

Alternatively the odbc-jdbc-win64-dlls-new.zip zip file archive with the fixed DLLs can still be downloaded to update an existing installation manually. The files in the zip file are:

  • ntl8j15zu.dll
  • ntl8j15z.dll
  • liblmgr.dll

and can be extracted and used to replace the existing DLLs of the same name as follows:

  1. The ntl8j15zu.dll and ntl8j15z.dll ODBC-JDBC Bridge driver DLL files need to be replaced in the C:\Program Files\OpenLink Software\UDA\bin directory.
  2. The liblmgr.dll OpenLink License Manager DLL in the C:\Windows\System32 directory needs to be replaces the updated DLL.
  3. Restart the “OpenLink License Manager” (oplmgr.exe) Windows service to force it to be reloaded and pickup the new DLL.

Then ensure all ODBC applications are closed and attempt to reconnect with the ODBC application that was giving the ODBC: ERROR [IM003] Specified driver could not be loaded due to system error 1114 error to confirm the updated DLLs resolve the problem.
