Many thanks Levente, Igor and Elliot !!!
I restarted from the standard image and finally have a working FFI/ODBC with 
(note still Win32Window coloredEllipses doesn't work)

It thought it was better to start from the trunk image and it was a mistake.
Then I loaded NecessaryImageChanges, FFI and ODBC in my squeak 4.1 
and now, I can load data from MSSQL with Cog
it's really super cool

Thanks again

Best regards

That image is used mainly to host Cog VMMaker, and not much userful
for anything else than just building VM.
Please, use 'official' squeak images , like here:
