ODBC SQLDriverConnect Crashes – Additional Info

The purpose of this post is to provide additional information regarding an issue that I am experiencing with an application written in C / C++ that can also run as a service. This is legacy code and has been operating for almost two decades. The software can be invoked to run interactively or as a service. The code just stopped to work when invokes as a service about two months ago. I tried to replicate it on my development system and on a new computer system.

C++ Boost Library Visual Studio 2017

My wife and I decided to go for a walk first thing in the morning. Today Saturday we got up at our usual time (05:30 AM CDT), had breakfast (yogurt, granola, blueberries, strawberries, bananas and a cup of milk with a shot of espresso) and headed out. As the walk progressed, we ran into several people getting their daily walk out of the way in order to avoid the high temperatures. Showered and sat in front of my computer. I will be working for the next four hours or so. This afternoon my wife and I will attempt a walk around one of the lakes in Minneapolis. Will be very hot but we are planning on a stroll and a stop for ice cream and water. Continue reading “CRUD Minus R on Mongo DB”
