I’m running !play framework 2.1.3 for a project and today I got the error “Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM warning: ignoring option MaxPermSize=256M; support was removed in 8.0.”.

Working with ODCB in Windows 7 64 bit could be a bit confusing, of course there are two versions of OBDC administrator available (one for 32 bit and one for 64 bit), this could cause some trouble when trying to add sources depending on if it’s 32 bit or 64 bit).

Here you find the different versions of ODBC administrator:
The 32-bit version of the Odbcad32.exe file is located in the %systemdrive%\Windows\SysWoW64 folder.
The 64-bit version of the Odbcad32.exe file is located in the %systemdrive%\Windows\System32 folder.
