No entry in "Driver (JDBC)" Version DBVisualizer 4.2.2 Personal

[This topic is migrated from our old forums. The original author name has been removed]

Hello, i´ve the DBVisualizer 4.2.2 Personal Edition and try to connect to a MS SQL Server 2005 Database. After I start the program I try to create a new connection. In this window I fill in the Database URL, Username and Password, but I can´t choose any Driver. If I click the pull down menue there are no entries. When I choose "Connect" I get an errormessage: "Please select a driver". How can I choose the right driver for the connection?

Just on a relevant side note, I'm getting a similar issue when running the *dbviscmd.bat* script. (Might be useful for other troubleshooters...) "+DbVisualizerCmd - ExecError: Connecting: Please select a Driver+" This was because the *-connection* parameter I was supplying, was not a valid connection name. See -> +dbviscmd -listconnections+ ---- Product: DbVisualizer Personal 7.1.4 Build: #1585 (2010/11/23 12:21) Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM Java Version: 1.6.0_22 Java Vendor: Sun Microsystems Inc. OS Name: Windows XP OS Arch: x86 OS Version: 5.1

Hi, Yes you would need to renew your license. I really recommend that your employer consider doing so since not only have DbVisualizer been updated but it has also been adopted to work with the latest OS and DB versions. If you still need to stay with 4.2.2 then you will need to download the JDBC driver and install it in DbVisualizer.

Hi, Thanks for your post. Please upgrade to the latest 7.1.3 version. 4.2.2 is almost 6 years old and unsupported. 7.1.3 include a JDBC driver for SQL Server while 4.2.2 don't. Best Regards Roger
