From https://www.heidisql.com/ about version 10.1 release:
This is a new release which mainly fixes the installer, which named the executable in your program files folder "heidisql32.exe", not "heidisql.exe". Sounds minor, but I suppose there are quite a few links out there still pointing to heidisql.exe. The 10.1 installer now deletes that heidisql32.exe and installs the fresh heidisql.exe.
Almost everything. It installs, it runs. You can connect to database servers, browse tables, modify data, modify tables. Update user permissions. Store multiple profiles for multiple servers. Export results. Save and load sql snippets. Everything I tried works with one exception: see notes below on crash when running custom query against MSSQL server.
What does not
Program crashes when running custom queries against MSSQL only. You can run custom queries against other databases just fine, it is only
Microsoft sql server. I don't know why, and I have not been able to find a workaround. There is a wine bug report for this specific problem. This is the only thing I know of that does not work.
Must install mdac28 and set native_mdac via winetricks. Optionally you can install corefonts via winetricks (sh winetricks corefonts) or fonts will be a bit odd looking.
If you want to avoid the crash when running custom query against MSSQL database, try wine version 3.14. This problem does not occur with that version. Wine versions 3.15 and cause various crashing problems.
What was not tested
Nothing that I can think of - I've been using this program for a long time, and I ran it through its paces. I use it almost every day. I'm
sure there are some obscure bugs in it, but I did everything I could think of.
I give it a SILVER rating because of the above mentioned crash. There is no workaround that I am aware of other than to use an older wine version.
This report is primarily for version 10.1. However, the crashing problem described above happens to version 9.5 and 10.0 of HeidiSQL as well.
I tested every version of wine from 3.0 through 4.1.
With wine versions 3.0 through 3.14, this program works perfectly. Starting with wine 3.15 and above, including 4.0 and 4.1, there are various crashing problems.
