John, this might have what your looking for.

If at any time the user would like to change the functions that are
available, the *install_acs_xx.js* script can be called with the /Reset
parameter.

I appreciate the response, but I don't believe the script(s) you are
referring to have anything to do with the ODBC driver. I did install
most of the components of ACS that way, and that went fine. But our
shop standard 5250 emulator (and some other functionality like data
transfer) is IBM i Access for Windows, and I'm not willing to
uninstall that.

The installer that comes with the ODBC driver associated with ACS
doesn't support coexistence with IBM i Access for Windows.

I had thought that the ODBC driver that comes with ACS is actually the
same as the one that comes with IBM i Access for Windows anyway. But
even if it's not, I can't imagine any technical reason why the ODBC
driver (whichever one) couldn't be installed independently. IBM just
chooses not to provide a means to do this.
