PostgreSQL driver and DataExplorer

PostgreSQL driver and DataExplorer

Postby MarkGorst » Tue 24 Aug 2010 14:49

New to both postgreSQL and devart drivers. We were using Blackfish but want to abandon that route.

Have just downloaded the driver and with Delphi 2010 when using the DataExplorer get

Unable to cast object of type 'Devart.DbxPgsql.DriverLoader.TCRDynamicDriverLoader' to
type 'Borland.Data.TDBXDriverLoader'

Which I understand is because the DataExplorer.exe is .NET based and your driver does not support .NET.

Is this a correct understanding ?

Is there going to be a change in this - for instance the bundled Emarcadero drivers support .NET as well ?

If not is someone able to point me at a tool which can do the same job as DataExplorer using your DBExpress driver / PostgreSQL.

Yes, you are right, DbxPgSQL does not support Data Explorer of RAD Studio 2010 because Data Explorer is a .NET application, and DbxPgSQL does not support .NET under RAD Studio 2010.

Instead of the DataExplorer you can use PGAdmin application

If we also purchase the .NET version for postgreSQL does this mean we'll be able to use DataExplorer ? Quite happy using PostgreSQL outside the DelphiIDE but it would help from time to time to make live connections inside DataExplorer.
