quite old. You could try 07.03.026X version from

The # char mean comment out the line?
Do you specify it in each session? Or do you specify only for install?

I see no $ODBCINIDIR definition. I see only definition of $ODBCINI.

Do you have specified in this session $ODBCINI?

FAQ for iODBC says:

[iODBC][Driver Manager]Data source name not found and no default driver specified. Driver could not be loaded, SQLSTATE=IM002

There are several reasons why this message could occur. The best solution
is to trace through what's happening: your application has been linked
against libiodbc, which has tried to find an odbc.ini file one way or
another - either through the ODBCINI environment variable or the fall-back
paths (typically /etc/odbc.ini, depending on how it was compiled). You
should check that such a file exists in a suitable location, and that
it is accessible (particularly if your application runs with different
user privileges - such as apache/php running as a www-data user).

Additionally, it could be that iODBC has found a suitable odbc.ini file,
but none of the file(s) found contain the DSN you've requested. Check
the syntax of your request - is the ODBC connect-string correct, and
does the DSN you're requesting exist? See also the section of this
FAQ, above, entitled `What's an odbc.ini and what do I put in it?'.
