/SUPPORTLEGACYCLIENTAUTH not working on 3.0 x64 installer

 Description  « Hide
Running the installer with /SUPPORTLEGACYCLIENTAUTH is not working.

If I run Firebird- and check the option "Enable authorization for legacy Firebird clients" it adds the following lines in firebird.conf

AuthServer = Legacy_Auth, Srp, Win_Sspi
AuthClient = Legacy_Auth, Srp, Win_Sspi
UserManager = Legacy_UserManager, Srp
WireCrypt = enabled

However, if I run the installer passing these arguments:

/SP- /VERYSILENT /NORESTART /NOICONS /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /SUPPORTLEGACYCLIENTAUTH /COMPONENTS="ServerComponent\SuperServerComponent,ServerComponent,DevAdminComponent,ClientComponent" /TASKS="UseSuperServerTask,|UseGuardianTask,UseServiceTask,AutoStartTask,|InstallCPLAppletTask,|MenuGroupTask,CopyFbClientToSysTask,CopyFbClientAsGds32Task"

The configuration file is not changed accordingly.

I didn't check on the x86 version of the installer.

BTW: Is that "WireCrypt = enabled" correct? (Should legacy auth be using this?)

Please ignore. I didn't read the comment in firebird.conf:

** Note that Wirecrypt should be set to Enabled when running a Firebird server with legacy authentication. **

Actually the problem is with the documentation.

File "doc\installation_scripted.txt" is wrong. There is no such option /SUPPORTLEGACYCLIENTAUTH at all in the installer ( )

The correct way to enable legacy auth is to add "EnableLegacyClientAuth" task. So, using these arguments:

/SP- /VERYSILENT /NORESTART /NOICONS /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /COMPONENTS="ServerComponent\SuperServerComponent,ServerComponent,DevAdminComponent,ClientComponent" /TASKS="UseSuperServerTask,|UseGuardianTask,UseServiceTask,AutoStartTask,|InstallCPLAppletTask,|MenuGroupTask,CopyFbClientToSysTask,CopyFbClientAsGds32Task,EnableLegacyClientAuth"

The installer adds the correct settings to firebird.conf.
