Subject Re: [firebird-support] UTF8, embedded server and LLBLGen
Author Stefan Heymann

did you install the icu*.dll files? These are important and may not be
left out, even for a minimal Embedded installation.
Leaving them away also drove me nuts some months ago ...

If you didn't and you created your database schema without them, you
will have to build it up again because your fields will have wrong
character sets.
