I opted not to installed ODBC support when I installed ColdFusion MX 6.1, and of course, now I need it. I discovered an installer that looked like it should do the trick, but it didn’t, and a reinstall of CF did not seem to work either. The solution? Here it is (courtesy of Mike Nimer):
1: Locate and open the file named adminconfig.xml in the ColdFusion lib directory.
2: Look for the field and set it to “true” (without the quotes).
3: Save the file.
4: Open the ColdFusion Administrator. The setup wizard will launch and you’ll be able to install the ODBC support (and the example applications too if desired).
