The library libiodbcinst.dylib is not distributed with our product, it is part of iODBC Driver Manager. Please make sure you've correctly installed the driver manager in your environment before installing and using our driver.

I see that you always post the same reply when people ask this question. I am having the same error. I installed iODBC Driver Manager prior to installing your driver, just as you instruct. It works just fine. When I test the connection in iODBC Driver Manager (my system required the 64-bit version), it passes the test. When I test the same connection in Excel, it fails with the same error message this user posted. Clearly there are some instructions missing. Can you please provide more than this generic answer and help people troubleshoot? We are paying for your product, and you have built it in a way that is dependent on another product. You need to be able to help people use it , even if that means troubleshooting a dependency.
