I played quite a lot with those EJB drivers.

when you uninstall them, you need to be extremely sure, that you
uninstalled allprevious versions, and used the uninstaller.bat file too,
and also you removed any reference fromt he registry. pls browse through
the archives of the list, becaosuse there already had been several
scripts published on this to resolv this problem.

After unisntallation a reboot is required, then booting into safe mode
and installing the new drivers should do the trick.
