Very strange, because odbc:start() has nothing to do with actual
connection to ODBC. Looks like you've got broken erlang installation.

If you want to test ODBC-connection, then you must try to contact ODBC
with isql, firstly. But I suspect that in your case there is a broiken
erlang installation since odbc:start() not working.

BTW what are actual results wen you're trying odbc:start() ?
With best regards!
