Firebird + Delphi XE2
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!

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.

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!
