When installing EventSentry and selecting the "Setup MS SQL Server" option during installation, we repeatedly get a "[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified" error.

This error appears when you specify a invalid username and/or password or a username with insufficient rights to be used for the database setup.

The installation process will still continue, however the database will not be setup correctly.

You can either uninstall the application and reinstall it specifying a correct username and password combination, or run the "Database Setup Wizard" after the installation is complete in order to setup the database.
