Can Odbc.OdbcConnection connect to a 32-bit DSN running under Vista 64 .NET? (Is there a 64bit to 32bit thunker like the old 32bit to 16bit thunker?)

I have a application and can connect correctly when running it under a 32-bit machine as I have a 32-Bit Sybase driver and a 32-Bit QODBC QuickBooks driver. When this same app runs on a Vista 64-Bit machine is can successfully open the 64-Bit Sybase driver but there is no 64-bit driver for QuickBooks. Can this be made to work without setting the Application to x86 only?

    Accepted Solution

    I'd recommend that you just compile your application for "x86" (rather than the default of "Any CPU").... that way your application will run as a 32-bit application on your 64-bit PC.

    I was hoping to get more information than I already posted in my question but at least you responded. I'm frustrated more people did not jump in with more options. Thank You.
