ODBC driver for Firebird vs powerbi

Post by allannissen » Tue 26 May 2020 10:43


I've followed this page to try to install the firebird ODBC driver on my computer.
https://www.devart.com/odbc/firebird/do ... _conne.htm

when I press test connection I get an error saying :
[Devart][ODBC][Firebird]Cannot load client library: C:Windows\SysWOW64\FBCLIENT.DLL

Anyone that can help me set this up?

You need to run the installer of Firebird on the machine that hosts your ODBC data source.
In the installation wizard, select only Client Components, then select 'Copy Firebird client library to <system> directory'.
