algorithmic modeling for Rhino


I'm using an old version of Slingshot for quite while. In my definition, I access a remote PostgreSQL database via ODBC Driver. Consequently, I use the ODBC query component.

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
at Slingshot.GHRDBFILE_Query.SolveInstance(IGH_DataAccess DA)

If anyone have any thoughts to offer, I'll be very pleased.
