I have found the documentation for the Zeos Patch a little sketchy and don't understand what I really need to do.
I have downloaded the zeos package as installed it. i understand that I have to patch the zeos package then recomplile and install the components.
3) copy the files on \dbase\ directory attached and override whatever is there
4) copy the mysql objects in the \dbase\ directory - including zlib directory and its content
i am confused ...
your present seems you have download ZeosMysql,Not DirectSQL.
DirectSql Need Not Install,it works as library,you can add all directsql files(.pas) to your project and directsql works!
