IBM i Access cannot be installed if planning to install IBMiAccess_v1r1_WindowsAP_English, it throws the message you mentioned.
Simply uninstall IBM I Access, and rerun the setup for IBMiAccess_v1r1_WindowsAP_English, and you should have your ODBC driver.

Subject: How to install just the ODBC driver in Windows?

Is it possible to install just the ODBC driver without installing the rest of IBM i Access or ACS?

Also, if IBM i Access is already installed, but without the ODBC driver, is there a way to install just the ODBC driver without reinstalling the rest of IBM i Access?

I had downloaded and extracted the contents. In the Image64a subdirectory there is a bunch of stuff that looks relevant. If I run the setup.exe, it complains that I already have IBM i Access installed and refuses to continue.

What now? I'm guessing that even if there isn't a script or installer for just ODBC, there are manual steps I can do.
