HowTo / Notes


Firebird client

Firebird client files could be deployed manually to IBExpert install folder.

They could be obtained from the Firebird Windows zip package from

Or you can install Firebird client from Firebird Windows Installer


Since wine version 1.1.32, it's platinium, the folowing instructions are for older versions


Instalation (versions of wine older than 1.1.32):

1. Check that you don't have wine_gecko installed (from ubuntu package or manually installed) because it is not compatible with ibexpert direct window.

2- don't run ibexpert before doing next steps, if you did it, you will need to delete .wine directory and start again.

3- Install DCOM98, you can use "winetricks" ( for this, but after install it, delete the rpcrt4 dll override in winecfg.

Or you can manually install DCOM98 as follow:

- Download dcom98.exe from microsoft
- Using winecfg set wine as win98
- rm ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/ole32.dll
- rm ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/oleaut32.dll
- using winecfg, add native dll overrides for ibexpert: ole32, oleaut32
- now you can set wine back to Win-XP if you need

4- install ibexpert.  


For older versions of wine older than 1.0:

The same steps as avobe plus following steps, (before installing ibexpert)

4- replace riched20.dll and msls31.dll (copy from a win98 or winxp distribution)

5- in winecfg add native dll overrides for ibexpert: riched20

6- install ibexpert.
