Qt5.6 ODBC ?

  • Please can someone explain why the odbc drivers are missing from the last 5.6 windows release ?

    There in not official explanation and the bug reports of
    QTBUG-51390 or QTBUG-49420 writes the status is CLOSED and Fix Version/s: None ! … Resolved : 26/Feb/16 !

    What means the above, I am a little confused.

    Thank you

    51390 is closed because it's a duplicate of 49420 and 49420 has been closed as invalid.

    From what is wrote on the bug report, there are so many flavors of ODBC that it's best that the application developer builds the driver against the ODBC version his currently using for his application. At least, it's how I understand it.

    Thank you SGaist for your respond … seems this is a different policy from now on and we are unaware of it .

    Is this the correct way for mingw492-xx ?

    cd %QTDIR%\qtbase\src\plugins\sqldrivers\odbc

    if you have more advises or links how to do it better with all those flavors you reference
    are realy welcome !

    Thank you

    Like I wrote, it's my understanding of the answers on the bug reports. I don't know the rational behind them.

    I'd say mingw32-make
