this is my first post in this forum, I think many will follow.
So I use multiple Firebird instances on Windows with FB 2.5
-the first instance is a standard installation
-the second instance is a not registered installation
I want the second Instance to be totally uninfluenced of any other FB instances & vice versa.
That seems to be the case, except of the aliases.conf !
If I use GSEC.exe or ISQL.EXE everything is fine and the aliases work...
But if i use the anydac abstarction layer + fbclient.dll the aliases refuse to work.
yet I can make them work, if I add them into the global aliases.conf that lies in the path of the first instance of FB created in the registry.
So wich entity is responsible for using the aliases.conf?
How can I get the aliases.conf that is in the directory of the second FB instance to be used?
I allready tried to setup the RootDirectory in firebird.conf, but no success here.
