Subject Firebird with BDE Administrator
Author mahletestsystems
Hi all,

Apologies if I don't know exactly what I'm talking about. I'm pretty
new at this.

I work for an major automotive company, working with testing and
diagnostic systems. We've recently gotten complaints from some of our
customers saying that our current database software (InterBase 6.0)
takes too long to write to binary. We've been trying to correct this
issue by testing various other database software (i.e. InterBase 7.5
and FireBird).

My problem is this: I can't seem to get BDE Administrator to allow me
access to the software. I have the database, have connected it to the
FireBird server, and downloaded and installed the ODBC driver in BDE
Administrator. It allows me to create an Alias for the database, but
when I attempt to access it, I get an error message that says "Invalid
configuration parameter" in both BDE (Error 12550) and the actual
diagnostic software that I'm testing.

I'm using FireBird 2.0 on a Classic server (I think).

If anyone has any idea how I could correct this issue, I would greatly
appreciate any help. Let me know, please, if more info is needed.
