Can't really accept your thanks, I did absolutely nothing. :)
It was WP that did all the leg work, so I relinquish my share of the thanks to him :P

Cheers,
Gus

Hmmm .. my hapiness was interupted by : 'Can not load default Firebird clients ("libfbclient.dylib" or "libgds.dylib" or "libfbembed.dylib"). Check your installation.'

I'm running Firebird 3.x Is there a way to add the path to the Lazarus DBDesktop ?

Regards,

/Dirk

I'm by no means a macOS expert, WAY far from that, but I've been reading here, on the forum, about Big Sur having a new way to access dynamic libraries and this could be related to that.

I'll let the more macOS inclined folk, give you a better explanation and a possible solution.

Cheers,
Gus

I am not a macOS expert either, but if you don't need Firebird in your evaluation you can load that "reglddfeatures" unit again, scroll to the top of the interface uses section and comment the unit "fpddfb  // Firebird". Then go to the implementation of procedure "RegisterEngines" and comment the line "RegisterFBDDEngine". Recompile the application and it should no longer try to access the firebird libs.

Thanks for pointing this out, but in my case it's Firebird I need and I'm using. I'll try to find out how to point the Firebird connection to the forementioned driver.
