The iNow UI Client uses the OleDb drivers from IBM.
- In older Client Access versions they were part of the main package also containing 5250 Emulation and iSeris Navigator
- In new IBM i Access Client Solutions the db driver for Windows are in a separate installation package.
No matter wich version you install, it is important to select the OleDb, not the ODBC driver.
