Problem with gds32.dll (Delphi - Interbase - Firebird)
Posted on 2008-10-31
I have a Delphi application using Interbase component to access a Firebird database
I currently use the gds32.dll of Firebird 1.5 (but the database, located on a "server" is in Firebird 2.1 version
It works perfectly well.
The PCs that need to run the application have just the application executable, the gds32.dll and a few other needed ones (ib_util.dll ... msvcp71.dll etc...). All these have just been copied in the executable directory
Now I want to "migrate" these clients to 2.1 version.
I replace the gds32.dll by the new one, and the same for all the other dll (and the .msg file)
When I then start the application, it directly issues this error message (I translate from french) : DLL interbase gds32.dll not founc in the path. Please install Interbase .... !
But the new dll and associated stuff is there !!!
What did I miss ?
How can I correct this on the clients, without special installation ?
