Getting the Right Firebird Client Library

All Firebird RDBMS kits contain at least one version of the Firebird client library. If there is only one, then it will have the same “bitness” as the server installation kit itself.

Important

Make sure that you get the fbclient library that has the same major version number as the server it is going to connect with.

Have the client library in its proper place before installing the driver and configuring the DSN.

Compatibility of the Driver with Firebird Versions

The most current version of the ODBC/JDBC driver is expected to be compatible with any supported version of Firebird.
