Important: Micro Focus does not provide the Informix libraries along with the Acu4GL® product. The Informix Libraries are necessary for providing a proper connection between Informix and extend products. If you do not already possess them, please consult your database documentation or database vendor for information on obtaining these libraries.
You need to order Embedded ESQL for C. If you are using the version 5.1 series, you need the version 5.1 0.UC1.client libraries. If you are using the version 7.2 series or higher, you need the version 7.2x or higher.
To find out whether you can use a client/server environment to communicate with other database versions, contact IBM.
Follow the directions provided in your Informix documentation for installation of the Informix libraries, or, depending on what your arrangement is with Informix, contact Informix Technical Support for any questions you may have.
