Issue Resolution:

Steps taken:

  1. Logged in as Windows User with local and domain admin rights, removed Workstation setup via My Computer > Uninstall or change a program
  2. Created and successfully tested a new ODBC DSN using native client 10.
    • If you are using a 64-bit Windows system, the default ODBC Data Source Administrator (available from the Administrative Tools menu) lets you configure only 64-bit data sources.
    • However, Sage 300 ERP is a 32-bit application. To create data sources for Sage 300 ERP, you need to browse for the 32-bit version of the ODBC Administrator. You can find the 32-bit ODBC Administrator in the following location:
    • C:WINDOWSSysWOW64odbcad32.exe
  3. Disabled the Anti-virus/ Firewall.
  4. Re-installed Workstation setup via the WSSetup folder within the Program data folder for Sage 300 ERP on the Server. Ran the setup.exe
  5. Once installed, viewed Database Setup and ensured / edited all databases to use the created datasource connection.
  6. Successfully accessed Sage 300 ERP both as admin and as the user.
