Resolving Error 1918, System Error Code 126, When Installing MySQL ODBC Driver

If you are installing MySQL ODBC Driver and encounter the following error:

Error 1918. Error installing ODBC driver MySQL ODBC 5.1 Driver, 
ODBC error 13: The setup routines for the MySQL ODBC 5.1 Driver

...myodbc5S.dll).. Verify...

Then you will need to install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (select the appropriate one for your OS architecture below): 64-bit version: 32-bit version: After installing that, then re-attempt installing the MySQL ODBC connector, and things should work smoothly. Hope this helps.
