Make a SDAC win32 application run on OSX

Post by brace » Mon 29 Nov 2010 10:55

Did yuo ever try to install sql server native client on Macintosh? I mean by using tools as http://winebottler.kronenberg.org/ or other tools?

Of course I develop win32 applications, but from time to time I lose potential sales because the customer has also that Mac machine and he doesn't want to hear about "virtual machines" or "remote desktop".

With winebottler (or other products? I know only about winebottler) it is possible to run exes built with Delphi on Mac, for example my application login screen appears, but then there is a connection problem (of course: no native client is there!)

Is there a way to fix this? Since you are experts in the DB connection field may be do you already have tried and solved this.

Thanks.

We have not tested SDAC for MAC OS and can't guarantee that it will work on this platform.
