  • HSTV2 database connect problem

    After 10 years running win2003 I switched to Windows homeserver 2011 64 bits.
    Homeseer is running but I have a problem with the HSTV.MDB
    I get the following error when I go to for instance events:
    Script error: [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified

    if Request.Form.Item("createevents") <> "" Then
    hs.launch hs.GetAppPath & "\data\hstv\hstv.exe","runevents",""

    Seems like HSTV can't open the database?

    Look on the hstv general options page and check what you have entered for the connection string. Make sure the pathway is correct to the database.

    Also, check the database to see what size it is. If it's near 2 gb, then run a repair and compact.

      Where can I find the general options page?
      I have the admin page with ODBC name : DSN=hstv
      HS is now running in C:\Program Files (x86)\HomeSeer 2\
      On my old PC it was C:\Program Files\HomeSeer 2\
      Can that be the problem somewhere?

        Sounds like you are running a really old version of hstv.
        The version where you just entered a datasource name requires you to go into Control Panel, Administrative Tools, ODBC DataSources and create a datasource called HSTV that points to the database.
