Yes, true. However, I have a multiuser Progress V7.2D unix licence with full networking
support, proven in use by multiple Progress sessions running both off the one desktop and
multiple desktops against it. I have a full Provision Dev system for V8.0A with all the
networking stuff installed and running. I installed the ODBC drivers and tested them woth
Progress supplied tools.
It still doesn't work with Delphi. If I have to have a multiuser Windows system to get ODBC to
work, I don't think I'll bother. Though it migh work with a later version of the server. When
I get time, I'll test it against a 7.3C server I have to install on a new machine. Live in
(Mind you, V8 has removed a lot of my reasons for wanting to run Delphi. But I feel that if
s/ware is purported to work, then it should.)
