    Post Lost SQL APIs

    I have lost ability to connect to the database i have been working on. I have noticed that the list of databases Alpha is able to connect to has shrunk and I cannot connect to Access nor MS SQL. Would anybody be able to help me with advice on how to restore this capability in alpha. I have tried re-installing alpha without success. I need help, Thanks.

    Yes. I my case I lost most of the APIs and I am left with a short list that doe not include Access and MS SQL. I happen to be working on an Access database to which I am unable to connect with Alpha. I wish I could restore these APIs/drivers. Thanks Available APIs 2019-07-17_00-49-35.pdf

    Instinct tells me to try reinstalling AlphaAnywhere after backing up projects.
    Curious side of me suggest trying {A5API=Access,FileName=''} to build the Access connection.

    I had this happen on a PC with Vipre Business antivirus installed. It flagged all but a few of the DLLs as known risks and deleted them.
