Installation of the AppManager agent fails:
Appmanager agent installation cannot create a local repository.
system error code 126 could not load the setup or translator library.


Change the registry keys referencing WINNT to the correct WINDOWS directory.  Changing this fixed the ability to access the ODBC administrator and also allows for installation of the AM agent.

If this location is incorrect (search for odbcjt32.dll) then changing this value should resolve the issue.


ODBC registry entries may have been modified in the past on the target machine by other software.  This could cause issues with accessing dll files needed to complete the local repository creation.
