ODBC Connectivity tips In my recent CodeRage X talk I presented many examples of ODBC connectivity. However, there was a some more I wanted to say, but did not have time to do so. So, below is that content. ODBC administrator has a 64 bit and 32 bit version on 64 bit versions of Windows. If you are using ODBC administrator from Control Panel, you are using the 64 bit version. To run the 32 bit version, you need to run c:\windows\syswow64\odbcad32.exe. The settings you make in the 64 bit or 32 bit version of ODBC ad...

More x64 assembler fun-facts–new assembler directives The Windows x64 ABI (Application Binary Interface) presents some new challenges for assembly programming that don’t exist for x86. A couple of the changes that must be taken into account can can be seen as very positive. First of all, there is now one and only one OS specified calling convention. We certainly could have devised our own calling convention like in x86 where it is a register-based convention, however since the system calling convention was already register based, that would have be...

x64 assembler fun-facts While implementing the x64 built-in assembler for Delphi 64bit, I got to “know” the AMD64/EM64T architecture a lot more. The good thing about the x64 architecture is that it really builds on the existing instruction format and design. However, unlike the move from 16bit to 32bit where most existing instruction encodings were automatically promoted to using 32bit arguments, the x64 design takes a different approach. One myth about the x64 instructions is that “everything’s wider.” That’s not the...
