first: I'm not on the myodbc list and my experience with odbc is _very_
limited. I used mySQL for several projects, though. Sorry in advance if
this is not the right way to use this forum.
My question: I have an old 16-bit Windows application running on WinNT. It
uses a 16-bit ODBC driver to communicate with MS SQL. For a web project, I
want to let the application communicate with a mySQL db on a unix (linux or
solaris) server (very simple inserts and selects). ODBC seems to be the way
to go but what difficulties will I face with the ODBC driver? In
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/sdkdoc/dasdk/odbc8x6b.htm I found out
that 32-bit drivers can run with 16-bit applications "as long as the 32-bit
driver does not explicitly call Win32 API functions that create threads".
Is this true for myODBC? Anyone solved a similar problem?
Thanks for any help,
