BUG #: 4637 (odbc3)
Expand all | Collapse all


An ODBC application may get the following link errors when linking with Odbccp32.lib;
odbccp32.lib(dllload.obj) : error LNK2001:
unresolved external symbol __imp__rename
odbccp32.lib(dllload.obj) : error LNK2001:
unresolved external symbol __imp___stat


Odbccp32.lib is not a pure import library. It contains some object code that has unsatisfied externals: rename and state. The rename and state functions are defined in Msvcrt.lib.


To work around this problem, make sure an ODBC application links Msvcrt.lib before Odbccp32.lib.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Open Database Connectivity version 3.0. This problem has been corrected in U.S. Service Pack 1 for Microsoft Open Database Connectivity, version 3.0. For more information, contact your primary support provider.
