Entries in "User DSN" tag for ODBC disappear

Manuel 21 Reputation points

I have a JAVA application working in Tomcat server. This JAVA application is using an ODBC entry installed at the user level to access the database.

This entry is disappearing after every update of the system. Is this a normal behavior? Is there anything that can be done to avoid this situation every time that I get a windows update?

This is happening in Windows 10.

Let me know if you need any other information.

    No, this is not normal. You could use ProcMon to find out what process is deleting the subkeys located here.
