Pyodbc is a Python 2.x and 3.x module that allows you to use ODBC to connect to almost any database from Windows, Linux, OS/X, and more. It implements the Python Database API Specification v2.0, but additional features have been added to simplify database programming. It was developed and is presently maintained by Michael Kleehammer. Pyodbc comes with an MIT(Massachusetts Institute of Technology), open- source, license. Consequently, it is free for personal and non-commercial use. Pyodbc is accessible only through Python programs and hence it's functionality cannot be described/ enumerated by the usual method of executing and capturing relevant screen shots. After running the installer, the only way one can be sure that it has been successfully installed is by checking in the computer's registry (pl see screen shot 3, which was taken by the author after installing on his Win 7 PC). (Note: Screen shots 1&2 are for guidance during installation). Being a Python module, a necessary prerequisite is Python (ver 3.3 or higher) which must be installed successfully prior to attempting to install Pyodbc.
