How to get the latest DataFlex SQL Drivers

We publish DataFlex SQL Driver "updates" that contain the latest drivers packaged in a ZIP file designed to apply these drivers to environments that already have older DataFlex SQL drivers installed.

You can determine the driver version installed in your DataFlex environments by clicking Help | About | System Information in the Studio. Unless you have specific reason not to, we recommend that you update your installation to the latest DataFlex SQL driver version available along with the corresponding Microsoft driver component (e.g. ODBC Driver 11 or 13.1) available for the target database.

Download DataFlex SQL Driver Update - December 1, 2017 Update v6.2.0.42 ZIP   ReadMe

By installing the above update, DataFlex revisions prior to the December build of DataFlex 2107/19.0 will be considered “supported” for the databases listed above for the 6.2.0.42 driver and corresponding Microsoft components.

For supported OS versions, please refer to the DataFlex environment where the driver will be installed.
