FreeTDS and Zeos 6.6

Postby alesf76 » 17.01.2014, 16:13

Is it possibile to use the FreeTDS library with Zeos 6.6 ?
I need to connect to a SQL Server 2012 instance.

Thanks in advance.

Hello alesf76,

I think this has never been tested and also it is not officially supported. If you use Delphi, you can easily use the ADO bridge which is the official supported way to connect if you ask Microsoft. If you use Lazarus, then you can easily use a newer version of Zeos that supports FreeTDS officially.
So - what are you trying to accomplish and why do you want to use FreeTDS for this?
Best regards,

Jan

Thanks.
I just need to fetch some data from an SQL Express database on a windows platform, I would prefer to not have to install the native client but I can live with it, I need to integrate it in a project already using Zeos 6.6 with firebird and don't want to upgrade now, so I think i will have to use the ADO driver, is it right ?

Hello alesf76,

yes, in that case ADO should be your safest bet. If you have problems with ADO and 6.6.6, please let me know.
Best regards,

Jan
