DTCTester on 64 bit Windows

To use DTCTester, you must create an ODBC data source. But if you’re on a 64 system and use the control panel to create the data source, you will receive an error when you run DTCTester:
SQLSTATE=IM002,Native error=0,msg='[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified’
This is because 32 bit applications like DTCTester have a different set of data sources. Run the following command to configure:

Then, run the following command:

DTCTester.exe <data source name> dummy

(Normally, the user ID provided doesn’t matter and password can be left out.)
