ODBC Driver on Windows 64bit clarification

February 28th, 2012 | 7 Comments »

From a Jonathan Monroe suggestion I posted this comment few minutes ago, but it’s very important so it deserves a separated post:

In order to use ODBC with a 32-bit application (such as MS Office) on 64-bit Windows, you have to install the 32-bit driver. In order to configure a DSN for the 32-bit driver, you have to use the 32-bit ODBC Administrator, located at:

c:\windows\sysWOW64\odbcad32.exe

A DSN configured using the default 64-bit ODBC Administrator will not be recognized by 32-bit applications. More information about this situation is available here:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms712362(v=vs.85).aspx

It is important to understand that you have to use the 32-bit ODBC Administrator on 64-bit Windows if you want to use the driver with MS Office or any other 32-bit application.

cubeSQL ODBC Driver 1.0b1

February 27th, 2012 | 11 Comments »

Thanks to Jonathan Monroe from Actual Technologies we are proud to announce cubeSQL ODBC Driver version 1.0b1. You can download it from:

There are some outstanding issues, so it should be considered BETA software. The most serious problems right now are:

- the “auto-commit” mode (default) is not working. All inserts, updates and deletes must be manually COMMIT-ed
- the “Store user ID in Keychain” feature (OS X only) is not working. You should disable this checkbox on your DSN.

There are several minor issues with some of the numeric and date / time data types. So far the drivers have been tested with MS Excel on Mac and Windows, please test the new ODBC driver with your solution and let us know if you find any problem.

Switching to FastSpring…

February 7th, 2012 | No Comments »

Starting from today we switched our payment processor system from PayPal to FastSpring.

We redesigned our store page so you have much more options within a much cleaner interface. PayPal has been a very useful business companion through the years but we feel the need for a more professional payment processor. With FastSpring you’ll be able to pay with both all major credit cards and PayPal and you’ll be able to immediately obtain your purchase invoice.

If you find any issue with your order please report it to us as soon as you can.
Thanks!
