This .NET Framework Class Library is provided by Mimer. The main functionality of the class library is contained in the file Mimer.Data.Client.dll.

The Mimer Data provider supports the .NET Framework as well as the .NET Compact Framework. With the Mimer Data Provider you can access both Mimer SQL Mobile and Mimer SQL Engine databases. The database can reside locally on your device/computer or on other network nodes.

  The first version, 9.2, uses ODBC to access the database. This version can work with all the older (and newer) Mimer SQL servers that support ODBC. By doing this, it is possible to use the Mimer Data Provider against versions beginning with 7.2. The functionality of this version is limited by what is possible to do via ODBC.

  The second version, 9.3, is 100% managed code. I.e. the entire provider is written for .NET. No dependencies will exist on ODBC or any software outside of the .NET Framework. This provider takes advantage of new functionality in the database server and therefore requires at least version 9.2.3 on the server.
