Configuring ODBC for vectorworks

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm trying to configure vectorworks to work with an mysql server but can't get it all to work.

Using OsX 10.10.1, Vectorworks 2013

I've installed mysql 5.6.22

I've installed ODBC 5.3.4 connector ( the admin tool doesn't appear in the utilities however :( )

I've tested the server, filled some databases.

I've given all the acces accounts a password.

I've made manual changes to the odbc.ini file to create a connection "vec":

[ODBC Data Sources]
myodbc  = MySQL ODBC 5.3 Unicode Driver
myodbca = MySQL ODBC 5.3 ANSI Driver
vec  = MySQL ODBC 5.3 Unicode Driver

[ODBC]
Trace         = 0
TraceAutoStop = 0
TraceFile     = 
TraceLibrary  = 

[myodbc]
Driver = MySQL ODBC 5.3 Unicode Driver
SERVER = localhost
PORT   = 3306

[myodbca]
Driver = MySQL ODBC 5.3 ANSI Driver
SERVER = localhost
PORT   = 3306

[vec]
Driver = MySQL ODBC 5.3 Unicode Driver
SERVER = localhost
UID = root
PWD = *****

When selecting the vec connection, filling the username and password I can press ok without any error.

The dialog shows nothing besides the text

Did I forget something ?

[1065353216] Driver error: 00000

[iODBC][Driver Manager]dlopen(/usr/local/lib/libmyodbc5w.so, 6): no suitable image found. Did find:

/usr/local/lib/libmyodbc5w.so: mach-o, but wrong architecture

I've tried the 32bit and 64 bit. Both give the same error. Ugh

edit:

It seems that the free odbc connector is broken. I tried the Actual Technologies version and it worked out.
