Hi,

finally I got it working, but have some questions left.

The minimum configuration I need is to install INFORMIX and then to have the
following seetings:

set INFORMIXSERVER=myPreferredInformixServerName
set INFORMIXDIR=c:\Programme\Informix\Client-SDK

and this registry key:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
 
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Informix\SqlHosts\myPreferredInformixServerName]
"HOST"="theHostNameOfTheDatabase"
"SERVICE"="the service from WINDOWS/SYSTEM32/DRIVERS/ETC"
"PROTOCOL"="onsoctcp"

What is not really clear to me is: Do I use now an Windows-ODBC-Connection
instead of a direct connection?
