Hello,

Im really frustrated finding this probs solution. here the code


Im using this in a servlet to connect to a database on local server thats my pc.
Problem Im facing is Im getting a Invalid String or Buffer Length error of Microsoft Driver Manager.

Im confused a bit with this issue since this code worked for me smoothly in Windows XP SP3 32 bit and since
I have upgraded my system to 7 64 bit its not working and I think there lies the problem.

Im using netbeans 6.8 as my IDE, Sql Server 2008 Express as my provider and windows 7 64 bit as my OS

Now, here what I have tried since 2 weeks to correct this issue:


Can anyone please solve the problem. Its urgent.

Thank You!

Can you download 32-bit jdk, and try with that.
(assuming that you are trying to connect to Access database, and I might stand corrected, but) At this moment there is no solution to operate jdbc odbc bridge to Access from 64 bit java.

No I cant
32 bit jdk wont allow me install netbeans.
I read somewhere that shifting from java to javaw would do the trick.
You know whats that ? or how to do it ?

I don't know how to do that.

There are, however, commercial pure Java MS Access JDBC drivers.
You could download a trial version and check if that works with your 64 bit setup.

This is for all those who have stuck on the same issue:

Guys sincerely im really upset about the fact that I wasnt able to get any solution for this.
Theres no update/ fix available for this issue.

I have tried installed Visual Studio 2008/2010 all the sql servers since 2005

But i assume that problem exists in the Microsoft ODBC driver manager of windows 7 64-bit,and theres no
way I was able to fix it.

I recommend all users to use a mysql server if your craeting a web application.
Download a server called WAMP 2.0
its working now for me.

heres a tutorial I found:

i hope this will help the needy.

I would like to ask administrator to consider this post resolved.

Thankx!

I am going to mark it as unresolvable. The original issue (MSAccess on 64 bit) is not resolved.

Good luck with your project, and with MySQL!
