Hi, David.

Welcome to the forum!

Are you saying no database connections are showing as in the graphic below?

If so, it sounds like you have no database drivers loaded. Check the following folder:

Code: Select all
C:\Servoy\application_server\drivers


and you should see a number of *.jar files. Servoy provides free drivers with Developer. If this folder is empty, try re-installing Developer and make certain that the drivers check box is ticked in the installer. You can also copy your own database drivers to this folder (e.g. sqljdbc42.jar for MSSQL).

I hope this helps!

The databases were showing but right-clicking on Database Server did not bring up the context menu for creating a new database.

I have however discovered the answer - pressing the Control Key and Right-Clicking does bring up the context menu.
This may be a Win7 isuue (?).

Anyway, thanks for your reply.
:D
