    Why is Tableau Desktop installer/updater uninstalling previous MySQL ODBC Connector versions?

    Adam Sinclair

      We have Tableau Desktop 9 on several machines in our company, each of which also has another piece of software that requires MySQL ODBC 5.1 Connector.  Tableau Desktop uses MySQL ODBC 5.3 Connector.

       

      Installing or updating Tableau Desktop causes the 5.1 connector to be uninstalled, which breaks the other software until the 5.1 connector is reinstalled.

       

      Why is the installer removing 5.1?  Has anyone else observed this behaviour?
