Checking Version Numbers

Middleware Client and Servers


Client

The middleware products use shared libraries or ActiveX depending on the product and operating system. One example would be the file "3kodbc.dll" is the shared library used by ODBC connections to Turbo Image and Eloquence on Windows. On Unix systems this file would appear as "lib3kodbc.so". 


Server

The servers for the middleware products use executable applications as appropriate for the operating system. On Windows these files would be named in the case of ODBC "odbcsrvr.exe".  On Unix systems, they use the same format "odbcsrvr.exe".

Use the VERSION system command as shown below. The version number is found on the second line after SOM #1. This line will begin with the (unmodified) application file name. In the sample, this is "SERVER version 2.3.3.2".

If you are using a unsupported version, it may not report the version number this way. You will need to use the commands below.

:SETVAR MSTRACE 7
:RUN SERVER.MM.MINISOFT

Unix

The version number is part of the delivered file name. The supported installation procedures call for creating symbolic links to standard (not version specific) names. For example, the 2.2.7.1 Build 5 version of the ODBC server for HPUX on an Itanium will have the file name "odbcsrvr.exe.22715-ia64-ELF32". There will be a symbolic link to the file from "odbcsrvr.exe". When requested by Minisoft support, please report the complete file name.


Windows

Check the file properties of the driver dll or server exe file. The version tab will contain the information needed.
