The only way to solve it . . .

... as far as I know, is to grant CGIs permission to create registry keys. This is determined by the Windows user ID that the CGI runs under, which is typically IUSR_machinename. If ASP and PHP can connect, then they must not be running under the default "anonymous" user ID that the Web server uses for CGIs.

But I have never tried "DSN-less" with MySQL; the only time I've used MySQL was with a DSN. Have you experimented with the same connection string that the other scripts are using? These connection strings are simply passed to the ODBC driver manager, so they should be the same keywords.
