Something from iSeries disc to install on Windows machine to allow access

I support a VB6 program that accesses an AS/400 iSeries machine.  It issues SQL statements.

There is a program on one of the iSeries disks that must be installed on the Windows machine.  Besides the iSeries Client ... there's the ... something option.

Can anyone tell me what that's called as it's been several years since I've instructed a customer in it and can't find my notes?

Thanks!

You'd need to install the "System i Access" client ... which includes the "System i Navigator" GUI tool and the ODBC data-source definition.

I don't think you'd need anything besides that.

Thanks, Dave.  We weren't using ODBC.  There's, iirc, a .Net data provider involved there ... and ... maybe something else.

Are you still pretty sure it's "System i Access" client?

According to the web-site below, it's now called "IBM i Access".

Product name has changed over the years: AS/400 Client Access, iSeries Access, System i Access, and now IBM i Access for Windows, plus some "Express" versions.  Installation media for IBM i Access for Windows ships with your system.  If your IBM account is set uf for ESS 9Electronic Software Support), you can download it.  Otherwise, you can order a media kit:

All the recent versions include a number of data providers:  ODBC, OLEDB, and ADO.NET.  

JDBC drivers are also available separately from the IBM i Java Toolbox or JTOpen (open source version of Java Toolbox).
