Intel USB 3.0 eXtensible Controller for Intel® 7 Series/C216 Chipset Family Windows 7 x64 BSOD

We have a number of Dell Optiplex 9010’s in use running Windows 7 Enterprise x64 which have Intel’s USB 3 chipset C216. However, the Dell cab file of drivers did not appear to contain a suitable driver for the systems via our deployment mechanism.


Once the machines were imaged and booting I attempted to install the latest USB3 driver from the Dell support pages (v1.0.8.251 ,A05) but the installation failed with a BSOD (Stop 0x0000007e), no matter how I tried to install the driver.


I then tried an older version (v1.0.6.245,A03) and that exhibited the same symptoms.


I then tried the oldest version available from Dell (v1.0.4.220,A01) and this worked without a BSOD! Note it’s the “Chipset_Driver_JPJJT_WN32_1.0.4.220_A01.EXE” file.


Hope this helps others!

MySQL ODBC 5.2.6 Driver for Windows (2008 r2)

I was unable to install the x86 or x64 MySQL ODBC driver (v5.2.6) in my Windows 2008r2 server due to a reported missing module, the exact error was:

“Product: MySQL Connector/ODBC 5.2 — Error 1918.Error installing ODBC driver MySQL ODBC 5.2 ANSI Driver, ODBC error 13: The setup routines for the MySQL ODBC 5.2 ANSI Driver ODBC driver could not be loaded due to system error code 126: The specified module could not be found. (C:Program FilesMySQLConnector ODBC 5.2myodbc5S.dll).. Verify that the file MySQL ODBC 5.2 ANSI Driver exists and that you can access it.”

A little searching turned up a gem from another blogger, copying C:WindowsSystem32msvcr100_clr0400.dll to C:WindowsSystem32msvcr100.dll and then restarting the MySQL driver installation worked a treat!
