Getting a channel error

Getting a channel error

Getting a channel error


I build a mobile application on Windows Mobile 2005.
When I create a connection to my database by Mimer Data Provider for .Net CF 2.0, I cannot open this connection.
Error was: 'Channel not open'
It had worked some days ago. I can't remember any changes that might affect this.
I use protocol:local and assumed that perhaps the mimcomm.dll might be responsible, but I didn't change anything in this respect. I already re-installed Mimer, but
that didn't solve my problem.

My connection-string is:
String conString = "Database=" + nameOfDBFile + ";protocol=local;User ID=Sysadm;Password=admin";

This is the way, I try to connect:
MimerConnection conn = new MimerConnection();
conn.ConnectionString = conString ;

At conn.Open I get the MimerException.

Thanks for any helpful hints.

RE: Getting a channel error


What version of the Mimer Data Provider are you using? The beta version (9.4.0) expired a week or two ago and will not be able to connect. There is a released version (9.4.1) that you should download if you are using the older version.


RE: Getting a channel error

Thanks a lot. That solved my problem.
