Had to install MySQL ODBC Driver on Windows when I was trying to use SSMA to convert a MySQL DB to Microsoft SQL. When I tried to install the driver, I got the below error and was completely puzzled. I finally found the fix..
Error 1918. Error installing ODBC driver MySQL ODBC

I spent a full day attempting to setup Database Mirroring on two SQL Server 2017 Development Editions with SSMS 17.4 to test a setup. Took a full day when it should have only took a few minutes and I could not find any help online, so I thought I would share my fix.
I was getting this error at first:
Database “AdventureWorks” is not configured for database mirroring. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 1416)
After doing some research, I discovered that I needed to restore a full backup with the NORECOVERY option. Did that. Here is what I got then:
Database ‘AdventureWorks’ cannot be opened. It is in the middle of a restore. (.Net SqlClient Data Provider)
