Hello. I am trying to upgrade from PostgreSQL 8.0.3 to PostgreSQL
8.1.10. I'm on WindowsXP and I'm compiling with Visual C++ 6.0.
I have a very simple routine that works fine with the 8.0.3 version:
exec sql connect to my_db as my_cnxtn;
printf ("connection results:\n");
printf ("code: %d\n", sqlca.sqlcode);
printf ("state: %s\n", sqlca.sqlstate);
printf ("warn: %s\n", sqlca.sqlwarn);
exec sql begin work;
exec sql commit work;
When I use the 8.1.10 version, the connection works ( sqlca.sqlcode is
0, sqlca.sqlstate is 0000 and sqlca.sqlwarn is blank). But it then
crashes on the "exec sql begin work" line.
I get the following error in a window:

folder, just to make sure I was not including the wrong header files,
linking to the wrong libraries, or calling the wrong version of
Oddly, when I removed all comments, it worked fine.
Thanks for any help.
