Use the User DSN When Debugging

Couldn't figure out why I kept getting "failed to call the odbc driver connection utility" when attempting to configure data tables in the DataSet designer in Visual Studio 2005 on a Windows 7 machine -- a duo that has incompatibility problems apparently.

I finally realized that the problem was that I had created a System DSN (like I always do) for the ODBC connection. I created a corresponding User DSN and it worked like a charm.
