Thank you for the tip. Meanwhile I found the 2.81 and 2.80 CSDK but the release notes nolonger mentions the Informix SE 7.24 as a tested platform. Are you sure that the 2.80 will work with Informix SE 7.24.
I cannot try it in the near future otherwise I would not ask.
Apparently CSDK 2.70 is tested for fr SE 7.24, Any clue were I could find that?
I'm using 7.31 and the 2.80 sdk and it works fine, so my guess is that the driver should be backward compatible. I tryed it when I had error retrieving tables from the server and it solved the problem so to my opinion you should go ahead and try
If you're having problems with that, there are alternate drivers available from www.openlinksw.com that have been buily specifically against Informix 7SE and do not require the Client SDK inbuilt as its already part of the software.
