Delphi -> Access, ODBC

by John Mc / October 28, 2003 12:00 AM PST

Will the odbcjt32.dll provided with Windows XP work on WinME or Win 98? Could this improve performance of programs written in Delphi that use an Access database?

''Will the odbcjt32.dll provided with Windows XP work on WinME or Win 98?''

I'll write that such would have to be tested. DLL's can contain links to functions that may not be in the target OS. It's called ''DLL Hell''. Use the jet installer for the OS in question.

FYI, I tried, in this case it worked - but the next time I turned my computer on, the previous DLL had been restored (in WinME) - seems to be part of the MDAC control package. Thing is, MDAC stopped including ODBC DLLS after version 2.5. I installed MDAC 2.7 directly after a MS security alert, skipping over 2.5 and 2.6, and now MDAC won't allow a previous version to be installed, nor any part of its components!

Hmm, I thought it was up to version 2.8.

Try the latest?

Take this with a grain of salt. We didn't allow Windows ME into the office because it didn't support printing from our legacy applications. Said apps work in NT, 2000 and XP, so this and other issues caused us to just eject that version. And I'm down to just one and only one machine in the stable with Windows ME.

Is there something I can test for you?

Advice

Since Windows ME is the root cause of many problems on a system that has windows ME... might i suggest upgrading the system to win NT or later (2000, XP) and all your problems will fly away

Update. No more Windows ME

The machine burped for the last time and is now running Windows 2000 SP4 with all the trimmings.

It's faster, more stable and I have to withdraw any offers I've made in the past to test anything on Windows ME.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
