Hello, Experts.

I have the following problem: I usually set up an ODBC connection on a machine running Windows 7 64-bit. I do the test successfully.

However, when I try to access via application (VFP-9), gives connection error.

It also returns an error when I run the command in interactive mode (SQLConnect).

Any ideas?

Translate from portuguese:

VFP requires 32 bit ODBC driver. Install it and try again.

Sorry for the delay.

I did the replacement for the 32 driver and it worked. Thank you.

But let me add: it works also with an older driver 64 (MySql-connector-odbc-5.1.6-win64.msi)
