installing ODBC driver
I visited at http://www.mysql.com/downloads/api-myodbc.html for downloading ODBC driver.
And I downloaded it by clicking Windows downloads(Driver DLLs only 3.51.06).
As I unzipped the downloaded file, I can see 7 files.
They are COPYING, INSTALL-BINARY, myodbc3, myodbc3.dll,
myodbl3d.dll,README, AND RELEASE-NOTES.
But I can't install the ODBC driver because I might not have the proper program in my system for opening them. I can't even open README file.
Which program do I need for installing the ODBC driver?
Which one should I click for installing the ODBC driver?
Thanks in Advance
I can read "README" with notepad now.
I tried to read it for almost 17 hours.
How foolish I am!
As I read the README file and some other files, I am scared because it seems not easy.
And I don't think that I can do it by myself.
Is there any easy explanation for installing ODBC drive with step by step example?
I found an easier way to installing ODBC driver.
If I choose 2.50 version instead of 3.52 version, It has the setup file.
I could downloaded at
As I install it, I can see "mySQL on the ODBC driver list".
It was quite a progress, but I have still a long way.
I can see seven input boxes in TDX mysql Driver default configuration.
They are like the following.
I entered "test" windows DSN name box, mySQL database name box, user box,password box like the above.
windows DSN name "test"
mySQL host(name of IP) "localhost"
mySQL database name "test"
port(if not 3306) " "
SQL command on connect " "
Before that, I made a database named "test", and a user named "test" which has the password "test".
I thought "localhost" might be the correct word for entering in the mySQL host box. so I entered it.
Since mySQL port is 3306, I left the port box empty.
Since I don't have any clue about what is the correct word for entering in the SQL command on connect box, I left the box empty.
Below those input boxes, there are 19 check boxes.
I won't list all the names but I say I didn't check anything because I don't know about that.
And clicked the OK button.
(Q1)Do you see anything wrong with my entering?
(Q2)What is the meaning of the SQL command on connect?
I am waiting for your any comments of you on this matter.
whether my entering was right or wrong, I did it in the window of "TDX mysql Driver default configuration".
How can I test the ODBC is correctly work?
I gave up ODBC.
I concluded ODBC is not a good way for Sharing my DB with others.
I'll find another way
