Subject Re: [firebird-support] Error Message Character Set not installed
Author Stefan Heymann

thanks for your help. Everything's working now.

I included SET NAMES UTF8 to my database creation script and used ISQL
to run it. Now i will also include fbintl.conf to the setup and so the
whole thing will not be that WIN1252 picky any more :-)

Thanks again.

Best Regards
