Installing SQL client libraries for Black Toolkit´s CRUD importer
You ´ll need to install the client libraries (OCI) for C.
You ´ll need to install the either ODBC driver or Firebird Server itself.
Dirty, but works. You 'll need to download the ODBC driver (DLL, 32bits) which contains also the libpq.dll. Unpack those into Black Toolkit´s directory and it will work.
The same for PostgreSQL, but with the Windows binary.
OK, The Black Toolkit is made in Lazarus and has SQLdb' s limitations. ZeosBDO has its also.
The client library cannot be newer than version 5.1.You will need to use ODBC to avoid problems. The ODBC driver connects and extracts CRUDs without problems. But cannot see the table names and field types automatically, because of information schema.
For Linux you need to install UnixODBC and it will work the same.
