    It's not really tested yet, but some customers succeeded in connecting to .net with the Client Software Development Kit (CSDK) version 2.80.
    It contains the latest updates for OLEDB.

    I have installed the same. But it gives the following error when opening the connection. I am not sure, it is because of CSDK or .Net.

    Do you have any idea?

    Following is the error:

    Non-NULL controlling IUnknown was specified, and either the requested interface was not IUnknown, or the provider does not support COM aggregation.

    I'm sorry, I'm not really a Microsoft fan, nor expert.
    Are there any Informix Errormessages where we can work on?
    Did you try a trace of the messages between client and server?

    Do you receive this error message when you try to establish a connection or are you running a sql command at that point ? Which provider are you using ?

    The error in your posted document is different than "Non-NULL controlling IUnknown was specified, and either the requested interface was not IUnknown, or the provider does not support COM aggregation.". When did you receive the IUnknown error ? Have you tried accessing the informix server from vb 6 (if you have it) ?

    I just tried the following.
    I installed Informix Client SDK 2.80 and it is doing fine at this moment.

    But need to be tested when i start actual coding. As of now, its ok.

    Thanks.
