dbExpress for MySQL 5.0 server compatibility?

Post by davion » Thu 28 Jun 2007 18:55

I'm using Borland C++ Builder 6 (Windows XP) with following dbExpress VCL components. I successfully use it with MySQL 3.23 server. But for now I going to update my MySQL server to 5.0.32 and old driver dbExpress wan't load client libmysql.dll (error with login) thus I can't connect to MySQL server.

So the question is if this problem fixed with latest version of dbExpress driver?

Core Lab dbExpress drivers for MySQL (DbxMda) support MySQL 5.0 starting with version 2.00. The last stable version of DbxMda 3 (3.20.5) and upcoming release of DbxMda 4 support latest versions of MySQL 5.0 as well.

Moreover, DbxMda have the Direct connection driver which allows you to connect directly to MySQL server not using the client library.
