Subject IBO with IB 4.x in a DLL
Author Andreas Prucha

Does IBO work with Interbase 4.x in a DLL? I have an old application
which uses the BDE and IB 4. Now I need to write a simple DLL which
updates table-structures and checks other things. This has to happen
in a dll. Unfortunately, when I do this with the BDE-DB-Components in
a DLL it /sometimes/ crashes the /server/. I have no idea why. For
example I get a INET-error 10038, a INET/slect_wait-error and a
SRVR_multi_thread-error. Well and the server crashes with an GPF. Does
it make sense to try it with IBO? What I do now is just to perform
selects on a few RDB$-Tables and do ALTER TABLE, CREATE TRIGGER and
similar stuff with TQuery.ExecSQL.
