Subject:Programmatic creation of ODBC DSN using SQLConfigDataSource
View as plain text  
I am using the MySQL ODBC 5.2w Driver (5.2.3) and it appears that it does not follow the
rules for SQLConfigDataSource. The specification for the SQLConfigDataSource function says
that the attributes should be separated using a null byte and the list of attributes
terminated with a 2 null byte sequence, however the MySQL ODBC driver only uses the
supplied attributes if they are separated using semi-colons. This doesn't seem right.

Does anyone know when this was broken, or if there is any intention of fixing it?

Thanks for your input.
