Thanks for the response.
In short, I think I have most of it sorted. The response above helped
clarify the sequence for getting everything installed and built whilst
the README files and Pg 68-69 of the User Guide helped with
configuration. There were some issues along the way so I hope this might
help if someone else stumbles across them.
I have both Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition and Visual Studio 2008
installed. Everything here refers to the Express Edition.
Uninstalled MySQL using Add/Remove Programs
Removed library and include entries for the VC++ directories
Reinstalled MySQL which included the developer components into
C:\MySQL51 (Version is 5.1.31 community edition)
Tested connection using the mysql command line client as well the GUI
Unarchived mysql++-3.0.9 into E:\mysql++3
Modified the MYSQL_WIN_DIR var in mysql++.bkl to point to C:\MySQL51
Rebaked the installation - ** "That shouldn't be necessary. The rebake
step you did will have taken care of this."** Nope that did not happen
for me - the directories for the Include files and Library files were
not appended for either VC++EE or Visual Studio.
Ran the resetdb and confirmed that the mysql_cpp_data database was
created along with the tables being populated.
Loaded VC++EE and configured the VC++ Directories for the Include files
and Library files to point to relevant folders in the MySQL developer
Attempted to build mysql++ libraries. There were some warning messages:
..\examples\cpool.cpp(219) : warning C4244: 'argument' : conversion
from 'time_t' to 'unsigned int', possible loss of data
..\test\array_index.cpp(110) : warning C4101: 'e' : unreferenced
..\test\array_index.cpp(162) : see reference to function
template instantiation 'bool test_string_index<mysqlpp::Row>(const
ContainerT &)' being compiled
Despite the warnings, the build was successful for the Debug (Repeated
same for Release)
Executed the install.hta and confirmed that the mysqlpp_d and mysqlpp
library and dll files were installed way down in ..\MySQL++\lib\VC++
Set up all the VC++ links and directories as per Pg68 or UserGuide.
Opened the mfc sample and built but whilst building without error the
app failed becasue it couldn't find the mysqlpp_d.dll. I copied such
file into the ..\Windows\System32 folder and was then able to
successfully launch the app and have it return records from the database.
Similar result for the wforms sample.
