Connecting in Direct Mode

Post by P Scott » Wed 24 Jul 2013 13:38

My database access is fine in "regular" mode. I tried to follow your example in the "Readme" file for Direct Mode and Encryption. But when i change the connection to Direct Mode, I get the error:
"Could not find Metadata: TDBXDevartSQLite MetaData Command factory; package: DbxDevartSQLiteDriver160.bpl. Add DbxDevartSQLite to your uses."

But I have that in the "uses", and the bpl file named is in the path and I believe I have the updated version (file date 5/17/13 and size 145). At least I did the update from Devart after direct mode was announced.

Always same error message with the things I tried. I would like to change an existing, working database in "regular" mode to be in Direct mode. I have many parameters, etc. set and working in "non-direct mode". After changing to Direct Mode, I tried blanking all of the parameters from the working connection and just adding the essential ones - Is that a good approach???

Also, when going to direct mode, should I remove the "vendor lib" that says "sqlite3.dll"?
(I tried it both ways).

We cannot reproduce the problem.. Encryption in the Direct mode works correctly and there are no specified errors. Please try creating a new application and reproduce the problems on it. If the problems repeat, please send this application to alexp*devart*com
