Today I am providing few simple screenshots to get a kick start on installing firebird and its .net provider.
Step 1: Download Firebird server or client package, if you are a windows user go to http://www.firebirdsql.org/en/server-packages/ and then download the 32 or 64 bit installation package.
Step 2: After downloading the correct version of your server package please lunch the installation wizard. You would see a screenshot like bellow.
Continue the installation process and when you see choosing service or Application choose application or server which ever suits your condition.
Finish the installation process and then move on to download the .net provider. Download and install the latest .net provider.
That’s it all set to move to next step you can develop application and use firebird as database. hit http://www.firebirdsql.org/en/net-examples-of-use/ to know more about how to use firebird in your .net code.
Hope this helps. Regards.
