I am using unixODBC on cygwin-b20 on a win95 system. I have installed a
windows myODBC driver and defined a System DSN which i intend to use.I
am linking the unixodbc libraries. Now since i am using unixodbc it
reads the /etc/odbc.ini file, while the myodbc windows drivers keeps it
settings in c:\windows\odbc.ini file. So i generally copy the windows
ini file on top of the /etc one.
Now when i make a program to display the data
sources(showSQLdatasources) it displays the datasources that are
available(probably by reading just the INI files), including the [odbc
32] part at the top of the file which only specifies the DSN's
When i use the ODBC connect functions however, it doesn't find the DSN.
I might sound terribly confused here.(I am). But does the ODBC driver
(that is unixODBC) try to use the windows myODBC bridge or not?? I mean
in a cywin environment?
Any help would be really appreciated.
