Hi, i installed MySQL ODBC 5.1 driver on windows server several times before for previous versions of FileMaker and it worked, and still works just fine. Now i am trying to do the same thing on Windows 2012 Server with Windows 8 platform and for FileMaker 13 Server and client, and with the newest driver 5.3. I am installing a 32 bit driver on the 64 bit system in the proper folder (...SysWOW...) as mentioned, everything same as i did previouslly. The drivers are successfully connected to the MySQL database. The ODBC on the FileMaker server is enabled. ISSUE: When i open FileMaker 13 it does not see the ODBC source, the list is blank. I tryed both ANSI and UNICODE versions. I have also tryed the previous version 5.1. Doesnt work. No error message is produced it just doesnt show, like if the drivers are installed in the wrong place, which i assume they are not. QUESTION 1: Is there a particular issue with Windows 8, FileMaker 13 or newest MySQL ODBC drivers that doesnt allow it to work? QUESTION 2: Could it be a security conflict, a port conflict or something similar preventing FileMaker to comunnicate with ODBC driver? QUESTION 3: Could it be that yet again they came up with some secret place where you need to install 32 bit drivers in order to work (even though there is a clear link to this now)? QUESTION 4: is it possible that it might be a 64bit driver now that i need to install? Thank you.
