Hello guys, I am trying all day to connect to firebird 2.5
I have downloaded the driver from
Firebird: ODBC Driver
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
Go to Solution.
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 !
did you already try to connect in Qlik Sense via that ODBC ?
yes, I have tried, and its giving me the same error: I attach 2 .jpg from ODBC setup and from qlik sense
let's try using the ODBC 32 bit version.
Have you tried to run whith local admin permissions?
Do you have another user and folder to store this file then trying to access?
I guess that something about permissions could be a problem.
I have tried, I installed the driver and the same error. I will do it again now and apply screenshot..
Yes I am using the Administrator account.
I will now try to install it with the user I created for qlik sense who has full rights over everything, and will get back to you..
hmm, my client's working time ended and my session as well , but tomorrow i will try. I will check permissions and try with another account..
Have a nice day/night
You can also try to create a ODBC32 bits connection like mentionned from Andre.
Whenever I try to make 32 bits connection, and click Test Connection, the odbc administrator crashes
