Include driver in the program

Include driver in the program

Postby ricolebo » Wed 11 Dec 2013 16:09

Hello,

I use dbExpress driver for firebird 4.1.2 on D7

I want to include the driver in my program (I don't want to install dbexpida.dll)

So I add DBXDevartInterBase in the uses clause, but I have this error :
[fatal Error] DBXDevartInterBase.pas(14): File not found : 'DBXDynalinkNative.dcu'

On my disk I don't have DBXDevartInterBase.dcu and it can't compile because I don't have DBXDynalinkNative.dcu.

What can I do ?

Thank you

Hello,

dbExpress technology supports built-in drivers starting with version 4 that was introduced in RAD Studio 2007. If you want to use built-in drivers, you should upgrade at least to RAD Studio 2007. Also note that to use dbExpress driver for InterBase and Firebird as a built-in driver, you should use its source code edition.

Thank you Andrey

But I really don't plan de upgrade Delphi (I have sources of the driver)
The driver dbpexint can be included even with D7 , no ?

This is a limitation of dbExpress technology, not of our driver. If you want to make built-in driver, you should use RAD Studio 2007 or higher.

Hi,

I am now in DelphiXE5
DBXDevartInterBase is in the uses clause, but dbpida40.dll in still required
What must I do to have built-in driver ?

Thank you

dbExpress driver for InterBase and Firebird with Source code includes the ReadMeSrc.txt file. The process of driver embedding to an application is described in the section "CodeGear RAD Studio 2007 and higher, dbExpress driver for InterBase and Firebird built-in version".
