The LinkEase driver is now only supplied in a 32-bit version. The version that is needed is determined by the application using LinkEase - NOT by the Windows operating system nor the DataEase database being accessed. 16-bit applications like DataEase for Windows, Plus and NetPlus, and Microsoft Office Access 2 and Excel 5 can connect with data sources using either the 16-bit or the 32-bit LinkEase driver, whereas 32-bit applications like Microsoft Office 95 and 97 products require the 32-bit LinkEase driver. Products like Crystal Reports, can be purchased as 16 or 32 bit applications. Most recently purchased applications will require a 32-bit LinkEase driver.

The LinkEase ODBC driver for DataEase includes a default Demonstration / Evaluation licence that will only 'see' the first 50 records in each table of any DataEase database - otherwise, it is a full working version of LinkEase. The restrictions can be removed simply by registering a full licence.
