Issue/Introduction

Description:

I have enabled the ODBC trace file on windows and I can see that the ODBC trace file is being created, but it is empty.
I'm using the Data Direct Drivers, but nothing is written to the ODBC trace file.

Solution:

On windows systems the ODBC layer is part of the operating system.

This issue has been documented by Data Direct and Microsoft as well:

If the Policy Server is running as a service, therefore you may need to enable the option "Machine-Wide tracing for all user identities" under the "Tracing Tab".
