  • Whats needed on client PC and server?

    Hey

    I'm currently using MySQL 5.0.9 with Visual C++ 6.0 and Qt.
    My project is on the server, with all the dll's needed as well as MySQL with my database.
    I can only access my database on the server from a client station if this client station also has MySQL installed. It doesn't even execute the queries in my code.
    Do I need to use server scripts and if so how do I do it?
    Is there in Windows something like a mysql-server and mysql-client package?
    Do we need to install MySQL on all of the client stations?

    Thanks
    Cilna

    alternatively, you can use window's Remote Desktop Connection to connect to that machine and do what you need. VNC, Dameware, and a host of others do something similar.

      You don't need to install mysql on the clients. It sounds like your clients don't have the needed ODBC DSN/drivers installed to be able to connect to the DB on the server.

      W2K and above:
      Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Data Sources (ODBC)

      Win98 (I think):
      Control Panel->Data Sources (ODBC)
