Ibm iSeries Access for Windows

I've to connect an application written in VB net 2010 to an old db on AS/400. I've only to read a registry and nothing else.
My operating system is Windows 7 64 bit but the application will be installed in a pc with XP Pro 32 bit. I'm not able to discover the link where to download the odbc client access.
Can you help me?

Thank you

Hi fantamen,


Here's a link to the IBM documentation on using ODBC drivers.  The page also contains a couple of links to the driver and instructions.

  http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/db2luw/v9/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.db2.udb.apdv.cli.doc/doc/c0023378.htm


Microsoft has quite a bit of documentation on running a DB2 ODBC driver here:

Good Luck,
Kent

Kdo I've read a lot of documentation but I could not find any link to client access download. Now I've subscribed a form in ibm site and I'm awaiting a reply from Ibm.

I've appreciate your concern

Hi fantamen,

I apologize about that link.  I thought that it provided better access than it does.


Try this one:

  http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=71&uid=swg21255394


A short way down the table you'll see "IBM DB2 Driver for ODBC and CLI ".  You can use the FTP link to get the driver for 32-bit.

You can install CA from your 400.
try this link:
\\your.as400.ip.address\qibm\ProdData\Access

There is a chance that it may not be configured for this service.
It is easy to try.
