    Firebird + Delphi XE2


    Greetings all

    Once again i am in need of assistance from this forum. :-)

    I have an application written in Delphi XE2 which is just a basic database maintenance app.

    All it does is backs up and restores the database.

    To do this i use the standard IBBackup and IBRestore that come with Delphi.

    This has all worked great up until i tried to move this app up to Delphi XE2, now when ever I try and connect (IIBackup.ServiceStart i get an exception saying cannot attach to services manager.

    I have looked on Embarcaderos site and they basically say I shouldnt be using those components ofr Firebird databases, however I know them and I am comfortable working with them, is there any sort of a work around that anyone knows of?

    Thanks in advance!

    Regards

    Donovan

    Firebird and Interbase continue to diverge, eventually you will fall off the cliff with this approach.
    I suggest you take Embarcaderos advice and look for a Firebird compatible solution.

    I know IBObjects are committed to Firebird compatibility.
    I have no experience with other component sets.

    Hi all

    Thanks for the response's.

    We have unfortunalty had to purchase a component pack.

    I just cringe at having to convert some of our other Firebird applications haha :-)

    Anyway, thanks again!

    Regards
