Using SDAC trial version

Post by ptashakori » Tue 01 Apr 2008 15:09

Hi all,
I am evaluating using SDAC and downloaded trial version for Delphi 5.
I don't want to use BDE because it must be installed on any computer that run application. What needs to be installed on the computer which runs the application which uses SDAC? When I ran the test app on different PC, I got this message: "SDAC Trial version needs additional bpl file to be present on running PC,..." Does this restrication remain on registered version?

Thanks,
Parisa

This is a trial limitation. The registered versions of SDAC you will not need additional bpl files to be copied to the client computer (except the case when you enable the 'Build with runtime packages' option in your application). SDAC requires only OLE DB, or SQL Native Client on the client computer. In current versions Windows 2000 and higher OLE DB is already installed.

Hi.

I've checked the FAQ, but found nothing relevant.

Could you tell me where I need to put the bpl files please?

Thanks.

Let me rephrase that.

I've tried putting the bpl files in...

1. The application folder
2. The System32 folder
3. The System folder

All the above have no effect and I still get the dialog telling me that the bpl files are required.

Thanks,

John.

Please check that you deploy all required BPL files and their dependencies (required IDE BPL files) with your application. You can find the list of needed files in the "Deployment" topic of SDAC help.

Thanks for that. I've checked the help file, and it says exactly what you said yourself.

Could you please list the "required IDE BPL files".

Thanks.

For Delphi 5 the required BPL files is: vcl50.bpl, vcldb50.bpl, vclbde50.bpl.

Thanks for that - I can now run test applications.

One problem I do have, however, is that I'm working on a transaction server that runs as a service.

I can't start the service due to the popup dialog about it being a trial version. Is there something I can do to resolve this issue?

I have to show comparisons between various DB access methods, in order to determine which is the best for this project (and future projects). I know for a fact that the SDAC components are the fastest, but unless I can show this in the transaction server, it'll just get pushed to one side, and I don't want that.

Thanks,

John.
