I want to be able to access a MySQL database from Microsoft Access running
on Windows 95.
My understanding is that in order to do this I need to install the MyOBDC
driver. I have obtained a copy of myodbc-2.50.22-dll.zip and put the two
DLLs into the C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory. I think I need to register
this as a driver, because when I try to create a new data source, the
MyODBC driver does not appear in the list of known drivers.
When I go to ODBC in the Control Panel, and then click on the "ODBC
Drivers" tab, there is no Add button. The Help information says: "Note
that this dialog box no longer includes Add and Delete buttons to be used
to add or delete a driver. An ODBC driver must be added or deleted
through the driver's setup program." Unfortunately, MyODBC does not seem
to come with one of these.
