Unable to Link PTW Database with Crystal Report 2016 (Database Vendor Code -1203)

When trying to link Crystal Report 2016 to PTW Database, there will be a logon error (Database Vendor Code -1203) like the window below.



Previous versions of Crystal Report (Crystal Report XI), the database will look in the following path:

C:\Users\localadmin\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Windows\odbc.ini


Crystal Report 2016 looks in the following path:

C:\Windows\odbc.ini



The odbc.ini file in C:\Windows does not have all of the information like the file located in C:\Users\localadmin\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Windows.


To resolve this issue, you can copy the data from C:\Users\localadmin\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Windows\odbc.ini to C:\Windows\odbc.ini. Make sure that you do not remove other information as other programs use Crystal Report and may be affected.


This is the text that has to be copied to the C:\Windows\odbc.ini

You can refer to the odbc.ini in this FAQ for the minimum information needed for the this to work.
