EASYSOFT_ROOTenvironment variable to point to:
where installation_path is the directory under which you want to install the driver. All files are installed in an
easysoft subdirectory of the installation_path you specify. For example, if you want to install the driver under
/home/myuser, type this command:
ODBCSYSINIenvironment variable to point to this directory. For example:
cd mkdir odbc export ODBCSYSINI=/home/myuser/odbc
The installation script creates an
odbc.ini file in the directory you specify.
odbcinst.ini contains an entry for the Easysoft ODBC driver.
odbc.ini contains the ODBC data source created by the installation.
Refer to the Easysoft ODBC driver documentation to see which environment variables you need to set (LD_LIBRARY_PATH, LIBPATH, LD_RUN_PATH, SHLIB_PATH or ORACLE_HOME depending on the driver, platform and linker).

cdto the directory created by untarring the distribution. Run the installation. For example:
cd odbc-sqlserver-1.2.0-sunos-sparc ./install
Parts of this installation requires the installer to be the root user and you do not appear to be root. **WARNING** You can still install the Easysoft ODBC-SQL Server Driver but the installation will be unable to update the dynamic linker search paths or install the driver under the unixODBC Driver Manager (the latter is not necessary). You may complete these processes manually by consulting the INSTALL file in the current directory. Do you want to continue with the installation? (y/n) [n]: y
Enter a base install directory (q=quit) [ /usr/local ]: /home/myuser
Note Do not append
/easysoft to the directory you specify. The installation automatically creates the
easysoft subdirectory. So, if, before running the installation, you set
/home/myuser/easysoft, you would specify
Do you want to use your installed unixODBC DM in preference to the version included with this distribution? (y/n [n]) : n
Would you like to request a Easysoft ODBC Driver for SQL Server license now (y/n) [y]: y
