We've been having lots of issues with the various version of the Informix drivers on Windows (2003, 2008, Win 7). The server IDS 11.50.FC6 running on Linux RHEL 5.3.

We've done some pretty exhaustive testing, and none of the current versions on the IBM site (http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27016673#windows) that have downloads available are working well on both 32 and 64 bit machines. (e.g. 3.50.FC9 and 3.70.FC8DE both give NullReferenceExceptions for IfxNameToIfxType, 4.10.FC3DE is much slower than the others).

We're getting excellent performance from 3.50.xC3, and 3.50.TC6 (can't find a download for 3.50.FC6).

Does anyone have a download for 3.50.FC6? I would like to test that one out.

Also, what does the "DE" mean in the version? Developer Edition? What's the difference?

Thanks for the info.

Sean.

Good afternoon,
Since loosing a server here (with no backup) I do not have access to the 3.50.FC9 drivers. Do you still have a set you can post for me somewhere?

I know this does not answer you question but in trying to find them I cam across your post.

Hi Sean,

you are right, DE means "Developer Edition", but finally the packages (DE and not-DE which is available through Passport Advantage download area) are exactly the same product.

Find for your tests the SDK 3.50.FC6 for Windows here:
https://www.wetransfer.com/downloads/d1b0e5236b43e6080e2e96e4819e225020151109134522/2117ba80c69f7eec07f5a381dd93079720151109134522/6d0b7f

Regards,
Francesco
