If you try and configure an ODBC connection via Remote Desktop, you may receive an error warning you that you have insufficient permissions.
Under Remote Desktop, Pervasive.SQL and its associated applications assume restricted permissions. This means that installation and configuration of Pervasive.SQL and associated applications (including ODBC) under Remote Desktop may not be possible.
You can force Pervasive.SQL to assume correct permissions under Remote Desktop by modifying the following key using regedit.exe
