What to do in case of ODBC datasource connection error?

The setup tries to register an ODBC DSN to the registry but in case of problem run "C:\Program Files\Ordisoftware\Hebrew Words\Register ODBC.reg" or open the ODBC datasource manager (Admin tools in Windows' Control panel) and create a user datasource named "Hebrew-Words" for "SQLite 3 ODBC Driver" with "Database Name" sets to:

"%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Ordisoftware\Hebrew Words\Hebrew-Words.sqlite"
