Installing

Applications using ODBC to access the DataDirect Cloud connectivity service require access to a properly configured DataDirect Cloud Driver for ODBC.
To install the driver on your local drive:
1. Log in to your DataDirect Cloud account, select the Downloads button on the navigation bar and download the appropriate installer package.
2. In a shell window, switch to the directory where you downloaded the installer package. At the command line, enter the name of the installer, including the file extension .bin. For example, for the 32-bit driver on AIX, enter the following:
PROGRESS_DATADIRECT_CLOUD_ODBC_2.0_AIX_32_INSTALL.bin
The Introduction window appears.
3. Click Next. The Installation Directory window appears.
Note: You can exit the Setup program at any time by clicking Cancel or return to the previous window by clicking Previous.
4. In the Where Would You Like to Install? field, check the default installation directory. If you want to change it, type the full path of the product installation directory or click the Choose ... button to browse to and select an installation directory.
Verify that you have entered or selected the correct installation directory, and click Next to continue.
5. The Pre-Installation Summary window appears. Confirm your installation directory. When you click Install, the driver is installed.
6. Click Done to exit the installer.
This completes the installation.
After installation, you must configure drivers and data sources; see Configuring an ODBC Data Source on UNIX and Linux Systems for details.
