Hello again,

After a two year hiatus, I now need to use my favorite database tool TOra again.  But you changed the toolchain, arrrrrrgh!  (-;

No matter.  I pulled the last SVN revision (4600) on the old tool chain and managed to cross-compile a mingw64 Windows 64bit build on a Fedora19 virtual machine with qt-4.8 and qscintilla 2.7.3 snapshot. [chest thumping!]  Too bad that I don't have the bleeding edge TOra code included!

Additionally, this build includes ODBC support now that F19 ships the qt odbc mingw64 dll.  However, it took some research to determine that all I needed to do was add "set QT_PLUGIN_PATH=%TORA_DIR%\plugins" to my tora64.bat file.

I now need ODBC because I will be working with MSSQL Server.  My Linux 4600 build also works fine with ODBC using the FreeTDS driver.

  1. Is the code base stable enough for me to starting hacking?   I'm using revision 4817 and I am getting the error below.   Maybe I am missing something in my environment?
  2. I know nothing of cmake (yet).  Do you think it will be possible to use it to cross-compile to Windows?  Any hints where to start?
  3. With the ODBC connection, all the tools except the SQL Editor tool and Project Manager are disabled.  Is there a easy way to enable them with little or no code changes?  I am "imagining" that I could use the brilliant Edit SQL feature and override certain queries which support my workflows with their native MSSQL equivalents.  Would the TOra programming know the difference if the result set was identical?  The Schema Browser is of particular interest if only to review table layouts.  Does this sound feasible?
Keep up the excellent work!  You have made a lot of my co-workers happy over the years too.
