Yes, it’s here. A small taste for start:
OK. There was some questions about “how to use DDEX provider for FB in VS2008″. Yesterday I had piece of time, so I’ve decided to try to install into VS2008 the DDEX provider. It has been working like a charm. I’ve been doing steps like in any other installation [GAC, machine.config, registry] and just changed few values in registry (using “stable” build of DDEX available on sourceforge). Nothing tricky.
I’ll commit to SVN new registry files as soon as possible, so it will be available for you. And I’ll also try to to create new DDEX version with described installation for both VS2005 and VS2008.
I like the software without installation, just one exe, one config saved on some well know place or near exe. For Firebird administration, I’m mainly using wfsql (better isql), IBExpert and FlameRobin (and sometimes isql). Well the isql is without config at all, the wfsql has one ini file, no problem. But sometimes you need something graphical, ’cause it’s faster to click here and there, commit, going home. The FlameRobin has nice switch. The “/uh”. When you put into /uh path to the conf directory, it will use it, else it will be saved somewhere is %AppData%. So I’ve create simple batch file to run it.
start flamerobin_unicode.exe /uh "%cd%conf"
It’s simply as it can be. First it sets the dir where it is as working and then runs the FR binary. That’s all. You can use it on flash drive, on network drive, wherever you want.
