Subject Re: [IBO] configuring IBO 4.3Aa for FB 1.5
Author russellbelding
Thanks constantijnw and Daniel

In summary, for a package like mine using

IBO4.3Aa +
FB 1.5 +
GDS32.DLL in the same directory as the executables

making the transition from FB 1.0.3 to FB 1.5 requires only
replacing the older GDS32.dll with a FB1.5 GDS32.dll made with
insclient.exe. (discussed in the excellent FB release notes)

Nothing needs to be done with firebird.msg vs interbase.msg as the
error messages are handled first by the FB server and feed to client
apps by IBO.
