    Trying to install a program on win7 (64bit) and it says

    "The following error occured on the file "c:\windows\sysWOW64\odbc32.dll"

    Access is denied.

    (0x5)"


    I have admin rights to this comp and I am running the install as an admin. The only thing I can think of is another program is using this .dll and making the install think its a read only. However I don't know how to find out what programs use what .dll's Any help would be sincerly apperciated.

    If you are running a 32 bit version of Windows 7, do you have a sysWOW64 folder?

    Maybe I am misreading your situation.

    Sorry I'm testing apps on both 32bit and 64bit for large company to migrate to win7. Anyway the first post is a 64bit error I get. (I'll edit that post)

    For the same app on the 32bit I get this error


    The following error occurred on the file 'C:\windoes\system32\odbc16gt.dll'.

    access is denied

    (0x5)
