How to resolve the specified DSN contains an architecture mismatch between the Driver and Application runtime error
need to create DSN with MYSQL 3.5 driver
The specified DSN contains an architecture mismatch between the Driver and Application when run in C++ exe


If you use the 64-bit odbcad32.exe to configure or remove a DSN that connects to a 32-bit driver, for example, Driver do Microsoft Access (*.mdb), you will receive the following error message:

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

To resolve this error, use the 32-bit odbcad32.exe to configure or remove the DSN.

 

--> run the oddbad32 version to create a 32 bit DSN to connect to (the default through Windows 7 uses it appears a 64 version)
