Subject How to connect Firebird 2.0 under SharpDevelop 2.0 and NET 2.0?
Author juetho_berlin
I don't know if this is the right way for my question: I don't want to
develop, but need support for the Firebird NET Provider.

Note: I'm not able to subscribe via
firebird-net-provider-request@...; my mails could not
be delivered for several times. Therefore I'm asking here.

I need support for FirebirdNETProvider-2.0.1-RC1. Please tell me where I
can send my problem to if you don't want to answer.

How can I connect Firebird 2.0 under SharpDevelop (#D)?

I am using #D and want to connect my application to Firebird
2.0 RC4 via FirebirdNETProvider-2.0.1-RC1. Normally, I have the same
problem discussed in many other #D-posts: #D only knows the MS-original
NET Data Providers.

Is it possible to edit the file
C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\CONFIG\machine.config and
insert the Firebird Provider like:
<add name="Odbc Data Provider"
description=".Net Framework Data Provider for
type="System.Data.Odbc.OdbcFactory, System.Data,
Version=, Culture=neutral,
I assume the Firebird's installation is not yet ready (RC1) and doesn't
insert its values into this list of DbProviderFactories.

Can you tell me where I can find the correct terms of the Firebird
provider? Via Reflection I suppose the following terms could be correct:
name="Firebird Data Provider"
description="FirebirdClient - ADO.NET 2.0 Data Provider"
Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=3750abcc3150b00c"

Thank you very much!
