I've just downloaded Mysql-obbc-connector driver, and how can I enable this driver to connect to Mysql from vbscript. How can I set up new odbc provider in Odbc source administrator window in Windows 7?


Have a look here: http://www.connectionstrings.com/mysql. The one for MySQL Connector/ODBC 3.51 is probably the one you're looking for.


For VBsript you probably want to use the OLEDB driver and the OLEDB connection string. See this Stack Overflow question. OLEDB is the native database connectivity in VBScript. Although if you do want to use the ODBC connector, see the the MySql documentation.
