Subject Re: [IBO] Sharing Interbase Handle in IBO
Author marius
i had the same problem with ibo it seems that when you do the
getnativehandle the Tdatabase is give you the name of the database in
netBeui format not in the TCP/IP so it is not working only if you have
the NetBeui protocol installed on the computer(windoze)
