Hi, I am totally new to MySQL and feel a little overwhelmed and confused by the sheer amount of documentation.

I have an existing Windows C++ app developed under VS2015. I want to allow access to an existing MySQL database on a separate server. I have downloaded an installed I have folders in Program Files/MySQL for both Connector.C++ 1.1 and Connector.C 6.1. I assumed that I would be using the C++ lib but the documentation says I need to use libmysql.lib etc which is defined in C 6.1 and mySqlcppconn.lib etc is in C++. I plan to link statically I'm not sure which to choose. I would appreciate a kick in the right direction, many thanks.
