What works


Exact version tested:

I regularly update this program with each new release. No problems when updating - I just download the update executable and run it in the drive.

In my opinion this is a professional tool and the developer does a lot of work to keep it going. Consider donating as it is worth it.

My day-to-day tasks include:
- Querying MySQL DB
- Updating large datasets
- SELECTing large resultsets
- Managing the DB
- Importing/Exporting data
- Creating DBs, DB Tables and so forth

I use this tool as my workbench DB explorer and it is awesome.

What does not

Nothing to my knowledge. I use this program on a day to day basis to connect to production servers running MySQL and PGSQL.

Additional Comments

In order to use connections over SSH you will need to use Putty and more-specifically it's PLINK.EXE ! Put it in the same virtual drive somewhere and reference it in Heidy's Session Manager. Tip: If you want multiple concurrent connections using SSH and PLINK.exe each one must have a different port in the SSHTunel tab.
