We're doing this large project, based on a legacy MSSQL database.
We've had some issues, particularly with datetimes, when communicating
with the server. These issues dissapeared after updating our ruby-odbc
package to a new version (we're developing on Linux and MacOS X, and
connecting to the remote MSSQL server via FreeTDS and UnixODBC/iODBC,
and then ruby-odbc in Ruby).
Problem is, when we run the application on the production server which
runs Windows, the problems remain. AFAICT, the ruby-odbc drivers are
installed alongside Ruby using the One-Click Installer, which we did
use. Only thing about this is, that according to the author of ruby-
odbc (http://www.ch-werner.de/rubyodbc/), the latest version compiled
for Win32 is 0.997, which is from 2005. And the problems we
experienced disappeared somewhere between versions 0.999 and 0.9994.
Does anybody know of a newer build for Win32?
Thanks in advance,
