Ok so I use photoshop elements and when I try and open the organiser on my PC I get all kinds of wierd stuff I was having random probems with photoshop anyway -random styles and patterns apparently missing so... I ran a defrag and a virus check and a spybot search an destroy (thought i would say that incase its related) I now have a new error message and cant open organiser , it says the ODBC installer DLL (odbccp32.dll) is not installed on the system. oh and when I click ok I get a second box saying: there was a problem opening the catalog named my catalog.psa another user or aplication may have the catalog open or one or more files may be missing, out of date or dammafed the odbc data source reported the following error: microsoft odbc microsoft access driver invalid connection string atribute attempt to compact and recover this catalog and open again. if I press oK i get the same error as before- the ODBC installer DLL (odbccp32.dll) is not installed on the system. I press ok and I get: A problem was encountered dduring catalog recovery. Your catalog may be OK but if you experience problems with it that cant be resolves through the recover catalog option or restarting your system you may need to restore this from a back up. I hit Ok and get the ODBC installer DLL (odbccp32.dll) is not installed on the system. again then I hit OK again and i get open catalog box, and there is one file in it called My Catalog.psa I click it and hit open and Suprisingly I get this message again the ODBC installer DLL (odbccp32.dll) is not installed on the system. It basically goes round in a circle! Any ideas? I just tried Reg cure to see if that worked-it didnt!
