Installing the ODBC Connector on Windows v16

EDB provides a graphical interactive installer for Windows. You can access it two ways:

Installing directly

After downloading the graphical installer, to start the installation wizard, assume sufficient privileges (superuser or administrator) and double-click the installer icon. If prompted, provide a password.

In some versions of Windows, to invoke the installer with Administrator privileges, you need to right-click the installer icon and select Run as Administrator from the context menu.

Proceed to Using the graphical installer.
