Afraid I hurried a bit trying to help with win-specific issue

Yes, with FPC 3.0.0 it works. The issue should be related to Delphi.

I wrote the code below in Delphi XE 3 (the code is written from the example "01.create.pas").
When I want to open an allready encrypted database by passing the encryption key via my application then the application freezes at line "att := prov.attachDatabase(st, 'fbtests.fdb', dpb.getBufferLength(st), dpb.getBuffer(st));" (the function "Callback" is triggered).

Could anyone please help me to manage how to pass the encryption key from delphi application to the Firebird server?

Program create;


st : IStatus;
master : IMaster;
util : IUtil;
dpb : IXpbBuilder;
prov : IProvider;
att : IAttachment;
tra : ITransaction;

procedure PrintError(s : IStatus);
maxMessage : Integer;
outMessage : PAnsiChar;
maxMessage := 256;
outMessage := PAnsiChar(StrAlloc(maxMessage));
util.formatStatus(outMessage, maxMessage, s);

IKeyCallback = class(ICryptKeyCallbackImpl)
function callback(dataLength: Cardinal; data: Pointer; bufferLength: Cardinal; buffer: Pointer): Cardinal; override;

function IKeyCallback.callback(dataLength: Cardinal; data: Pointer; bufferLength: Cardinal; buffer: Pointer): Cardinal;
var Key: PAnsiChar;
  KeyLength := 1;
If (bufferLength > 0) and (buffer <> nil) then
    WriteLn('Sending key');
    Key := '1234567890abcdef';
    KeyLength := Length(Key);
    WriteLn('got key request: '+Key+':'+IntToStr(KeyLength));
    Move(Key, buffer^, KeyLength);
Result := KeyLength;

var param1:String;

  if ParamCount>0 then
    param1 := ParamStr(1);
  if param1<>'open' then
    param1 := 'create';

master := fb_get_master_interface;
if master = nil then
      WriteLn('master is nil');
    Write('getting util interface...');
util := master.getUtilInterface;

    Write('getting status and dispatcher...');
st := master.getStatus;
prov := master.getDispatcher;
if (util = nil) or (st = nil) or (prov = nil) then
WriteLn('null pointers');

prov.setDbCryptCallback(st, IKeyCallback.create);
Write('Generating DPB...');
// create DPB
dpb := util.getXpbBuilder(st, IXpbBuilder.DPB, nil, 0);

Write('user name...');
dpb.insertString(st, isc_dpb_user_name, 'sysdba');
dpb.insertString(st, isc_dpb_password, 'masterkey');

    //create empty database
    if param1='create' then

        nil, nil, nil, nil); // Input parameters and output data not used

      // commit transaction (will close interface)
      tra := nil;

      WriteLn('Press Enter to continue');

      // detach from database
      att := nil;

      // remove unneeded any more tag from DPB
      if dpb.findFirst(st, isc_dpb_page_size)
        then dpb.removeCurrent(st);

      // attach it once again
      att := prov.attachDatabase(st, 'fbtests.fdb', dpb.getBufferLength(st), dpb.getBuffer(st));
      writeln ('Re-attached database fbtests.fdb');

      // start transaction
      tra := att.startTransaction(st, 0, nil);

      // create table
      att.execute(st, tra, 0, 'create table dates_table (d1 date)', 3,
        nil, nil, nil, nil); // Input parameters and output data not used

      // commit transaction retaining
      writeln ('Table dates_table created');

      // insert a record into dates_table
      att.execute(st, tra, 0, 'insert into dates_table values (CURRENT_DATE)', 3,
        nil, nil, nil, nil); // Input parameters and output data not used

      // commit transaction (will close interface)
      tra := nil;

      writeln ('Record inserted into dates_table');

    //open database
    else if param1='open' then
      att := prov.attachDatabase(st, 'fbtests.fdb', dpb.getBufferLength(st), dpb.getBuffer(st));
      writeln ('Database fbtests.fdb Opened');

// detach from database (will close interface)
att := nil;

dpb := nil;
on e: FbException do PrintError(e.getStatus);

According to Alexey Kovyazin this compiles fine using Delphi XE6 or XE7, I wonder if there is a problem with earlier versions of Delphi? On cross checking this code will run as well... i.e. Alexey did manage to get the code to also work with an encrypt library and passed the key via the application. So the version of Delphi does seem to be an issue.

Yes, the problem is data types. Especially NativeInt.
