I have Visual C++ .NET 2002/2003 environments and I'm trying to store BLOB fields to the mysql 4.0.18 database. API I'm using is MFC ODBC classes(CRecordSet).
Result is that I cannot do anything through the MFC API? Even adding recordset classes through the .NET class wizard doesn't work with the current MyODBC driver? Older driver worked better?

How to repeat:
Here's a code snippet of how I try to store files to the database table:

CdbImages       dbImages(&theApp.m_DB);
CFileDialog     fd(TRUE,NULL,NULL,0,szFilter,this);


        CFile		fileImage;
        CFileStatus	fileStatus;

        fileImage.Open(fd.GetPathName(), CFile::modeRead);

        dbImages.m_BLOBName = fileImage.GetFileTitle();
        dbImages.m_BLOBImage.m_dwDataLength = fileStatus.m_size;

        HGLOBAL hGlobal		= GlobalAlloc(GPTR,fileStatus.m_size);
        dbImages.m_BLOBImage.m_hData = GlobalLock(hGlobal);




    catch(CException* pE)

Suggested fix:
Please, tell me how should I insert blob data to the MySQL database through the MFC ODBC api.

If the compiled application is in UNICODE, inserting blobs doesn't work?
If the application is compiled as MSBC, blob's can be inserted to the database?

We do not support UNICODE in c/odbc v3 (MyODBC) at this time. The plan is to support UNICODE in c/odbc v5.

We have had issues with the BLOB type. Please try c/odbc v3.51.12 and lets us know if you have success or failure. You can get it from www.mysql.com downloads or get a patched version (has fix for SQLDriverConnect) at;

You can't add binary data with release 3.51.06, 3.51.12 and 3.51.13.

When you call to rs.Update() an exception with the message "General driver defined error" is raised.
