    Error in windows 2003 only "can not load fbclient.dll"


    Hello,
    Today I test my app under xp and it work fine but when I tried to test it under windwos 2003 server I get this error message "can not load fbclient.dll"

    I made my app with delphi and fibplus, any advice ?

    Note: I run FB 2.1super server , the server itself run fine on win2003 but not my app

    Thanks

    Is, by any chance, that 2003 64bit? If yes, you need 32bit fbclient.dll in the same folder where your app is...

    Have you installed MSVC 8 runtime? It is not enough to copy these dll's, you must install it...

    I have my folder structure like this:

    [FireBird]
    [Intl]
    my.exe


    all dlls are inside [FireBird/Bin] and this work without problems in Winxp x86, winxp x64 and vista ultimate x86 !!.

    It can't hurt just to try putting fbclient.dll in the same directory as the EXE. Maybe it won't solve your problem, but it's worth the few seconds it takes to try it.
