MySQL ODBC driver on XP

MySQL ODBC driver on XP

MySQL ODBC driver on XP

Hi All,

I'm trying FMP9 out. I was able to query my MySQL db with FMP9 on OSX using a 3rd party ODBC driver no problem. I'm now trying to do same on XP but 1'm in new territory here and I’m getting a bit stuck ... can I check on a couple of points with you?

My take on it so far is that I need to look to MySQL corp. for the required driver to install via XP's ODBC Data Source Manager (e.g. MySQL corp. writes the ODBC driver to tell an app on XP how to contact and query a MySQL db)Is that correct ... or should I get the driver from elsewhere?

I've tried a couple of drivers so far. They appear in install, but I cannot see them when I try add them in Data Source Manager, and I get no further. Can you help me?

many thanks Giles
