 Description  « Hide
Hello firebird developers,

for client machines without firebird server installed we are supplying the gfix/gbak/nbackup.exe with our applications.

This works great for gfix and gbak, but unfortunatelly nbackup expects the file "firebird.conf" in a directory above its own.
If this file is missing, nbackup exits without any notification. Creating an empty file "firebird.conf" solved the problem temporarily.

It would be great, if nbackup would report why it failed or if it could run without the firebird.conf.

Best regards,

I've kept check for presence of firebird.conf only in server code. This automatically let's all utilities and embedded clients work without it.
