If you are specifying the odb.exe file in your URLs, the CGI directory it's on needs to have "execute" privilege in the web server.

If you use "script mapping" to map the script files (say, *.odb files), so you only specify the script files directly in the URLs, then the odb.exe can be on any directory that the web server user ID has execute access to, and it doesn't even need to be defined as a web-accessible directory. (This is really the best option if you have access to the server configuration.)
