IBEasy+ Installation Guide

To install IBEasy+ and avoid trouble, carefully read the following:

  • In order to work properly, IBEasy+ requires Firebird and Microsoft Database Engine to be installed on your system.
    If Firebird and/or Microsoft Database Engine (X32) are already installed on your system, you can choose to download only IBEasy+ alone, see download page. In all other cases, you need to download the full IBEasy+ installation script.
    If you encounter problems installing Microsoft Database Engine, follow these steps:
    1-Launch windows CMD in administrator mode.
    2-Change the directory to the one where Microsoft Database Engine has been downloaded.
    3-Run the downloaded file by adding the parameter: /quiet.
    For example, for Microsoft Database Engine 2016, type the command:  AccessDatabaseEngine.exe /quiet
  • IBEasy+ Full installation script is made up of:
    IBEasy+, Firebird and Microsoft Database Engine. All of those softwares are necessary. 

    1- IBEasy+ is the main application

    2- Firebird is the DBMS.
    -IBEasy+ uses Firebird's default port 3050. If you are using a different port, you must change the value in the "Options/Preferences" menu of IBEasy+.
    -If you already have Firebird installed in your system, you can uncheck the install box option.

    If you want to use Firebird embedded, check out the Firebird embedded guide.
    You must install the embedded X32 version of FireBird to use it with IBEasy+.

    3- Microsoft Database Engine  is needed to export/import data to/from Firebird to Microsoft Office: Excel, Access...
    If Microsoft Database Engine is already installed in your system, you can uncheck the install box option. 

  • Define a first user

    You can ignore this section if you are using Firebird embedded
    Once Firebird is installed, you can use IBEasy+. When you first use Firebird, the security database needs to be updated. Only the database admin "SYSDBA" can access a database.
    It is therefore recommended that, at least, one additional user be defined.

    For this, proceed as follows:
    -In IBEasy+ menu "Server/Users management", enter the admin password chosen when installing Firebird and set the user "IBEASY" password "ibeasyuser", or any username and password you want...
