Starting ArcView produces this message:
"the odbc resource dll c:\winnt\system32\odbcint.dll is a different version than the odbc driver manager c:\winnt\system32\odbc32.dll. You need to reinstall the odbc components in order to ensure proper operation."
Clicking OK allows ArcView to start but it cannot make ODBC connections.
There are at least two possible causes: The operating system was installed without the ODBC components, or
The ODBC core components were overwritten by the installation of Service Pack 3 or some application, after installing ArcView 3.1.
