MySql -python 1.2.1_p2 and visual c++ toolkit


I'm trying to use Python 2.4 with MySql 5.0, but I'm having
installation problems.

I've tried to follow the following articles to install mysql-python
with the free visual c++ toolkit

but when I'm trying to install mysql-python, I get the following errors

C:\Python24\Lib\site-packages\MySQL-python-1.2.1_p2>python setup.py

_mysql.c(2808) : error C2143: syntax error : missing ')' before
error: command '"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual C++ Toolkit
failed with exit status 2

It failes on the second line here :
if (PyDict_SetItemString(dict, "version_info",
PyRun_String(version_info, Py_eval_input,
dict, dict)))

As I'm new to python, I cant really figure out what the error is. The
C2015 error states that I'm trying to pass a char* where a char is
version_info is, as far as I can see, defined in metadata.cfg as
version_info: (1,2,1,'final',2)

Still this doeasnt tell me much..

I hope that someone can help me with this problem.

I'm pretty new myself. But if you don't get anywhere using
mysql-python, I can recommend

mxODBC. I have connected to both MS Access DB and MySQL DB. You get it


But read the instructions carefully as I think there are two things to

If you search on python-msql and compare to mxODBC in this forum it
seems people have an easier time with mxODBC.

I tried mxODBC now, and it worked out of the box. Thanks for the tip!
