ODCB settings in the Windows registry on 32 and 64 bit windows

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/03/27

  • While 32-bit applications can run on 64-bit machines, they cannot use 64-bit ODBC drivers. A 64-bit application must use a 64-bit ODBC driver, and a 32-bit application must use a 32-bit ODBC driver.
  • ODBC.INI registry paths for the various permutations:
    • User DSNs for for 64-bit and 32-bit applications
      • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ODBC\ODBC.INI
    • System DSNs for 64-bit applications on 64-bit Windows and 32-bit applications on 32-bit Windows
      • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI 
    • System DSNs for 32-bit applications on 64-bit Windows
      • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\ODBC\ODBC.INI

Via: [WayBack] Windows registry on 32 and 64 bit windows, which also explains ODBCINST.INI to define drivers.

Workaround for “Nmap 7.8 Assertion failed: htn.toclock_running == true” · Issue #1764 · nmap/nmap · GitHub

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/03/27

I got this on Windows 10, 8.1 and 7, MacOS and Linux:

C:\bin>nmap -sn 192.168.71.0/24
Starting Nmap 7.80 ( https://nmap.org ) at 2020-03-24 13:44 W. Europe Standard Time
Assertion failed: htn.toclock_running == true, file ..\Target.cc, line 503

Luckily [WayBack] Nmap 7.8 Assertion failed: htn.toclock_running == true · Issue #1764 · nmap/nmap · GitHub has a solution: add the --max-parallelism 100 parameter:

C:\bin>nmap -sn --max-parallelism 100 192.168.71.0/24
Starting Nmap 7.80 ( https://nmap.org ) at 2020-03-24 13:48 W. Europe Standard Time
Nmap scan report for 192.168.71.1
...
Host is up.
Nmap done: 256 IP addresses (50 hosts up) scanned in 54.07 seconds

The other workaround is to have at least one ARP request succeed.

Wanneer je TomTom XXL niet reageert op “Ga door”

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/03/27

Af en toe (met name als de batterij bijna leeg geweest is) heeft mijn TomTom XXL een probleem dat deze niet meer reageert op de “Ga door” knop in het scherm met de gegevens van de eigenaar.

Dit lost het op en meestal ben ik dan niet eens de tijdzone kwijt:

Probeer het navigatie systeem te resetten (30 sec. de “aan/uit” knop induwen). Het enige aan gegevens die u kwijt bent, is de tijdszone instelling en de klok.

De TomTom XXL gebruik ik nog steeds af en toe: ooit gekocht in de USA had het “World Life-time Map-upgrades”. Dat bleek alleen voor de eerste kaart te zijn die ik had gedownload (USA dus) maar de updates komen nog steeds uit.
