    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
    http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/odbc/2.50.html.

    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.
    Code:
    windows DSN name  "test"
    mySQL host(name of IP) "localhost"
    mySQL database name "test"
    user "test"
    Password "test"
    port(if not 3306) "   "
    SQL command on connect "   "
    I entered "test" windows DSN name box, mySQL database name box, user box,password box like the above.
    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".

    Now what?

    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
