• Delphi Starter XE2: Installing ZEOS

    Delphi Starter XE2 does not come with many options to connect to databases. You can however install the Zeos database components, so that you can connect to most common database engines. As per the ZEOS portal you should be able to connect to:

    • ADO
    • Mysql 4.1 to 6.0,
    • Interbase 5 / 6
    • Firebird 1.0 to 2.1
    • Postgres 7 to 8
    • SQLite 2.8 to 3

    You can read more about the Zeoslib here: http://zeos.firmos.at/

    The basic steps:

    • Get the latest version from SVN (rev 935 when I got it) from here:  https://zeoslib.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/zeoslib/branches/testing
    • I created new packages for XE2, copied from the delphi15 packages, converted them and made any changes needed to get it to compile. Patch file for rev 935: zeosdbo_rev935_delphixe2
    • My patches were committed to the SVN, so the latest SVN should have the changes for XE2
    • Open up the $(COMPONENTBASE)\zeos\packages\delphi16\ZeosDbo.groupproj
    • Compile All
    • Add the $(COMPONENTBASE)\zeos\packages\delphi16\build to the path
    • Install the ZComponentDesign package

      Hi Rodrigo,

      The latest SVN revisions have been updated with the patch, so you will just need to get the latest revision from SVN.

      Regards,
      Bernd

    Hi there, I’m having problem with zeos.
    I’ve downloaded the SVN version and opened packages\delphi16\*.groupproj.
    I’ve added the folders from branches\testing\ to the library, to make sure that no file would be missing.

    But an error still occurs:
    [DCC Fatal Error] ZAbstractConnection.pas(64): F1026 File not found: ‘ZDbcAdo.dcu’

    Can someone help me?

    I’ve just tried this, and it works if we copy the following files to \windows\system32 folder:

    ZComponent160.bpl
    ZCore160.bpl
    ZDbc160.bpl
    ZParseSql160.bpl
    ZPlain160.bpl

    Thanks for the tip!
