I am getting a the same error as the others from another program, Enterprise Architect by Sparx Systems. The application uses Microsoft Data Link to make the OLEDB Connection and I get the error when using the "Test Connection" button on the Microsoft Data Link "Connection" tab. I have turned on the trace in the ODBC settings as you suggested and the c:\myodbc.log file is never created. If I do not test the connection and press OK allowing EA to get back the process the application throws an error:
Catastrophic failure.
Searching on microsoft I found this link for this error number:;en-us;187942
but this is no help to me but hopefully helpful to someone else.
