[?] Mac Classic, 2.6.1, MySQL

Permit me an "off the wall" question...
Do you REALLY need to support OS 9?
Any computer Apple has made since 1998 (8 years!) will run some flavor 
of OS X (although they probably need more RAM). The time and effort you 
would put into supporting OS 9 could be invested in making your OS X 
product even better - giving your customers another reason to make the 
move. OS 9 is dead, or at least dying, first there were new computers 
that would not boot into 9, then there were new computers that wouldn't 
run 9; as used and reburb computers run out there will be no OS 9 
options for your customers.
We had originally intended to port our HC business system to Rev in OS 
9 and OS X. Then we decided that the customers running OS 9 had a good 
business system they could continue to use (our current HC one). New 
customers and all current customers moving to OS X would not care about 
OS 9 compatibility.
Your situation may be different.
Just a thought.

    I've tried building the application on two different Mac OS 9.2.2 
machines (an old iMac and an old UMax ;-) but, as mentioned previously, 
the application crashes with an error of Type 1001 unless I switch the 
MySQL libraries then I get a "unsupported database type".. 
  So as it stands, I'm boned in this department...? I'll try the 2.5 and 
the Valentina work-arounds to see if anything happens with that.. 
  Don't just search. Find. Check out the new MSN Search!
