What do you mean by ODBC driver registration?
WinSQL comes with a set of ODBC drivers for some popular database.
However, before you can use these drivers they must be registered with
your Windows Operating System.
WinSQL does not register these drivers automatically, giving you a choice of register them or not.
Steps to register these drivers
- Click Register ODBC Drivers under the Help menu in WinSQL
- This will bring up the following screen.
Do I have to register these drivers
No. You only need these drivers if you decide to use them to connect to any database.
register these drivers if:
- You are planning to use WinSQL Lite
- You will be using a driver from your database provider
