C# Express and Firebird

HI all,

Trying to get some folks familiar with C#. They have downloaded the express
edition. Theses guys are used to firebird.
My question is, Are the express editions able to work with databases outsite
of MSSQL such as firebird.

As long as you have a suitable provider, then yes. The IDE might not
necessarily give you as much support, but the runtime should be fine.
Some quick search results yield:

I have some pages that display fine (or at least as I intend them) on most everything except Firebird (including 0.6.1). Is anyone aware of CSS issues specific to Firebird? Example page: http://www.billsaysthis.com/content/misc/view_sayings.phtml Seems to not be respecting the width setting in a style. TIA.

Hi, I've been using FB1.5 and access the database using Kinterbasdb + Python. My connection is established using kinterbasdb.connect() method and the parameters host, dns, database, user, password are all defaulted to 'None'. On my own machine running Mac OSX 10.3, I can connect using the following: host = 'localhost' database = '<my path to FB database>'

Tom, Actually, I've never had a corrupted firebird database. There were two bugs in an older version of InterBase that produced income for me. The first was a failure to realize that a file had just gone over 4Gb and therefore the word holding the offset had rolled over and the system had begun writing at the beginning of the file. Nasty. The second was a case that allowed a server to open a single database twice, thinking it was two...

I have an Access 2003 application that is split into two .mdb files for the interfaces and data. This app is distributed on a CD to be used on computers that have no internet access. When someone needs an updated dataset the backend .mdb is refreshed from a load of Oracle tables and sent on CD so that the user only needs to replace a single file. The front end links to the tables in the back end. The problem is that the amount of data...

Hi. I have a Python program that parses a file and inserts records into a database with MySQLdb. I recently upgraded to MySQL 5.0.8, and now my parser runs *really* slow. Writing out to CSV files is fine, but when I try to insert the same records in a MySQL5 database, it slows to a crawl. Using MySQL 4.1 seems fine. The data seems to be inserted correctly, it's just really slow. Has anyone else noticed a similar problem using MySQL5...

Ok I have been slowely - and ever so slowely teaching myself VB.net Currently I have created an MDB file by code, and added fields to the MDB file by code. I like this solution because, ( im assuming ) if I create an EXE and I load an MDB file, I can see if certain fields are there, and if not add them. Kinda like an Update that is imbeded into the EXE, so you dont always have to create an Install shield.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
