ADO Connection to MariaDB

  ado, c++, database, mariadb

I try to connect in a C++ via Ado to a MariaDB Database.

CADODatabase m_dbConnection;

(my test.h)


Connection String is

DRIVER={MariaDB ODBC 3.1 Driver}; Server=; Port=3306; database=db; UID=8001; password=********;

I tried to setup a DSN but I don´t know how the connection string has to look like?


Is it important if the program is a 32 or 64 bit version? which DSN is used in this case?

I always get the error:

Init(): Could not connect to database with connection string 'DSN=Cue1 DATABASE=yesdb'
Error message: Connection String = DSN=Cue1 DATABASE=yesdb
CADODataBase Error
Code = 80004005

Code = 80040e73
Code meaning = IDispatch error #3187

Any ideas?
