Cant install on windows


I’m trying to get a demo up and here’s the error I get on the installer:
Can connect to database:

HelpSpot can not connect to the database. Please check your database settings in config.php.If you are running MySQL 5 on Windows you may also need to install the MyODBC connectors from the MySQL site.

I’m running PHP 5.1.4 and mySQL 5.0.22. I have checked the db settings in config.php many times. I installed the mySQL ODBC. Now my ? is do I specify a DSN in config.php?



localhost should work there.

Also if you’d rather not spend a lot of time kicking this around we can set you up with a hosted trial.
