Frequently asked questions

How to install SQlite ODBC Driver?

The setup installs:

In the event that an error message indicates that a DLL file could not be copied, it is usually due to the fact that an application using this driver already installed is running and is blocking the file. You can ignore this error or close the application in question and restart the installation to obtain a driver update.

What to do in case of ODBC datasource connection error?

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

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