Hi
I am trying to remove some data souces from DBconnect manager but having no luck. I have remved them from control panel/administrative tools etc but they are not reflecive in Map 3d.

I am about to begin quite a large task and before i begin i woul dlike to know if the sources can be removed individually or if they have to be removed altogether (causing problems long term).

Can anyone help, please.

Attached is a screen dump of the list i am trying to remove.

Many thanks

Did you check to see if you can remove them from your enu file under the mapversion folder. PATH: username\application data\autodesk\mapversion\enu\datalinks

Thanks for your help. I cannot find the mapvarsion folder anywhere? I have deleted them out of the Data Sources (ODBC) file in control panel but they still will not go away?? Any thoughts?

Are you talking about the .udl files? Look in your options, File tab, Data
Source Location.

If they are listed in the DBconnect dialog and you follow the path to the
folder set in your options support paths for the data sources make sure you
have windows explorer set to show all file types, if you still don't see
them make sure you reboot Map3D to clear the DBconnect dialog.

In your Windows explorer address bar start typing what you see below.  When you get to "data links" part of the address hit enter and it will open the "data links" folder. Delete the links you no longer want in there and restart AutoCAD.

 

<your drive letter>:\Users\<your usename>\Roaming\Autodesk\<your AutoCAD version>\R18.1\enu\Data Links
