If you are bumping into the following error when trying to open ProjectPAK after updating to Version 8.0:
you will need update the TradeSoft17 ODBC entry. To edit the ODBC entry in 64 bit Windows, you’ll access this via C:\Windows\SysWow64\odbcad32.exe. For 32 bit, you access it via the Control Panel | Administrative Tools | Data Sources. Select the TradeSoft17 entry under System DSN and click Configure.
Select the Login tab. Make sure that Action is set to “Connect to a running database on another computer”. Click Ok to save the change.
Here is how mine looks now, as I have my IP and my distinct port.
