I am using Express perhaps that's the problem.
There isn't any errors above that, although from what a google search said,
that does look like the root problem. But since the examples work, I'm
not a problem with my install and more with some setting somewhere.
I guess I'll just dig through it some more. Or just give up and see if I can
get ODBC to work instead.
