View Full Version : ODBC with Delphi 3.0 using ISX 2.0

There is no checkbox to choose ODBC when creating Delphi 3.0 projects
using Installshield Express 2.0.

If I choose the project type as just Delphi, then I get to see all the
options (ODBC, BDE, Report etc.). If I choose Delphi 3.0 as my project
type, then the only option that I get for Delphi objects is BDE. Why is
this happening?

Thanks

ODBC support had slipped out of the Delphi 3 project type.
I guess you'll soon see a patch which will incorporate ODBC 3.0
support into Delphi 3 projects.

They are set up as user, and ISX sees them on my system. I am able to
check them, and it looks like it is happy, as I am able to complete
all 5 steps of the ODBC wizard.

I'm not sure what you mean by account no. If you mean login id on the
network, I am logging in, so there should be no rights issues.

Yes, I am setting up 3 data sources. I tried you suggestion, and
re-created the setup using only on data source, and still no success.
