Caution: The patch will replace \NextLibrary\Executables\InformixEOAdaptor.dll and the

Informix Adaptor Patch Release Notes
The following problems have been fixed in this update:
Problems: The Informix adaptor won't work with the Informix 7.2 client libraries
Fix: This adaptor is now linked against ISQLT07C.lib rather than isqli710.lib. This means this adaptor works only with Informix 7.2.
