In the Function my_SQLAllocConnect, called in SQLConnect, Global Mem is allocated.
    HGLOBAL hdbc = GlobalAlloc (GMEM_MOVEABLE | GMEM_ZEROINIT, sizeof (DBC));
    if (!hdbc || (*phdbc = (SQLHDBC)GlobalLock (hdbc)) == SQL_NULL_HDBC)
      GlobalFree (hdbc);
      *phdbc = SQL_NULL_HENV;
      return (set_env_error(henv,MYERR_S1001,NULL,0));
What if GlobalAlloc return NULL ? GlobalFree would get NULL to free and an access violation occurs (MSDN).
I have an Access Violation while makíng a connect.

How to repeat:

Difficult, because depends on result of GlobalAlloc.

Suggested fix:

Do not free, if hdbc==0.

If GlobalAlloc fails, why there is no GetLastError, to get extended error information? Would be nice to find out, why it fails.
