ODBC Connection Details

    When connecting Veculim  to a Firebird database, you might want to test the database connection details, by using the ODBC Data Source Administrator. This can be run from the C:\Windows\SysWOW64 folder on a 64 Bit computer or the C:\Windows\System32 folder on a 32 Bit computer.




    Testing the Firebird Connection

    Once the ODBC Data Source Administrator is running, click on the Add button.




    Select the Firebird/InterBase(r) driver option and click Finish.

    The Firebird ODBC Setup window will now be displayed.




    Fill in a Data Source Name. This could be used to identify the Firebird ODBC connection setup.

    Enter the Database path using one of the following, depending on your current setup:


    Veculim Server Firebird Server Firebird Client Data Path
    Win32.png Server32.png Client32.png
    Win32.png Server32.png Client32.pngClient64.png
    Win64.png Server32.pngServer64.png Client32.pngClient64.png
    Win64.png Server32.pngServer64.png Client32.png \\\C:\ProgramData\Veculim\SharedData\Live.fdb

                Please Note: Substitute host name & IP address with your own.


    Enter the Database Account as SYSDBA and the  Password: masterkey as masterkey.




    Now, you can click on the Test Connection button.


    Troubleshooting Notes:

    Keep in mind your connection will fail out if:

    • The required ODBC drivers are not installed. If not installed, the install can be found in the Veculim Program folder.
    • Ensure that the Firebird Service is running. This can be checked in your Control Panel under Firebird Server Manager.
    • Ensure that the client dll's have been installed in the C:\Windows\Sysm32 or SysWOW64, depending on whether you are using a 32bit or 64bit. Also ensure that they are not perhaps an outdated version. If not sure, remove the client dll's and re-install the client drivers.
