Hello guys, I am trying all day to connect to firebird 2.5
I have downloaded the driver from
After I have installed the driver go into ODBC and try to connect to it, but whenever I click "Test connection" the ODBC crashes and restarts.
any help will be highly appreciated.
Any workarounds you may know feel free to share them
Have you tried to extract these dll´s inside the windows folder mentioned on error message?
Just tried to download and extract this dll on windows folders.
Yes, after I have installed the driver, I extracted the said DLL's into Windows/System32 and replaced all 4 files.
PS: Currently I have installed only Firebird x64, because my windows is 64 bits. // Should I install both, x32 and x64( although I think that's not possible)
So, I guess that you want to create a ticket/support case on Firebird Community (https://www.firebirdsql.org/en/support/) because it´s not a Qlik problem.
Thanks for your time Ricardo Gerhard,
I have contacted the support in Firebird ODBC driver's mailing list.
Thank you again for your time and help
Have a fruitful year !
So After i contacted the Firebird bird support i got the following response:
"To access a firebird database, you need to have a firebird server running....
If there isn't one, then you should download and install a copy of the firebird server"
So the problem was that in my server i didn't have firebird server running, thats why it always gave out errors.
I reinstalled the drivers,
I installed the Firebird server, after that the Firebird ODBC(only the installation procedure,without the file with .dll's) .
After that i connected to the datasource without problem.
Thanks for your time !
Living and Learning!
Now, we know that the firebird SQL doesn´t allow direct access to database file.
Thank your for share.
