Thank you for the video!
Can you please clarify: why is it necessary to use QRemote with 32bit application, why can't we use QODBC driver right away?
Thanks!

Hi Anna,

IIS Web Server is a service-based application.

When you run a web application in IIS Web Server the process is executed as a Windows services.

IIS Web Server service (Windows services) runs in the context of a SYSTEM account.

Visual Studio is the desktop-based application.

When you run the same web application in Visual Studio the process is executed in a Normal Desktop User Context.

Windows services are prevented from communicating with desktop applications like QuickBooks and QODBC.

QRemote works as a bridge between remote applications and the QODBC Driver by communicating data calls between the two worlds using TCP/IP (Internet) protocol.

So, to communicate with the service-based application, you need to use QRemote Server.
Please refer below-mentioned link for How to use QRemote:
http://qodbc.com/links/2483

IIS Web Server
You need to use "QuickBooks Data QRemote" QRemote data source name (DSN) for 32-bit IIS Server - Application Pool
& "QuickBooks Data 64-Bit QRemote" " QRemote data source name (DSN) for 64-bit IIS Server - Application Pool

For Desktop-based 32-Bit Applications, you can use "QuickBooks Data" - QODBC Driver and there is no need to use QRemote unless you are using QuickBooks Data Remotely.

Please refer below-mentioned link for Accessing QuickBooks Data Remotely using QODBC & QRemote:

For Desktop based 64-Bit Applications, you need to use QRemote Server.

Please refer below-mentioned link for How to Configure QODBC to Work With 64-bit Applications:
