    I use VB6 (SP5) to access a MySQL database setting on a UNIX box all the time. If you could provide more information maybe I could be of some help.

    Hi miglou,

    Try checking out the link provided by EDDYKT. There is a section on XP SP2 that may give you a clue as to what is happening.

    Greetings All,

    While I appreciate the guesture, I must decline the 'Acceptence'. I am not one to take credit when none is due. EDDYKT should be awarded the points, I was only suggesting that miglou take a look at the link provided by EDDYKT, I provided nothing new.

    Thanks anyway,
