We have released an update of IBProvider, which has the solution for error with code 8152 of MS SQL Linked Server.
Short annotation of this problem – MS SQL has the problem with processing of object descriptions in metadata schemas.
New provider allows you do not publish object descriptions in schemas.
You may turn off publication of object descriptions to speed up the process of loading metadata schemas as a whole.
We glad to inform you about news of IBProvider [Native OLE DB Provider for InterBase and Firebird] development cycle.
- A support of Firebird 3.0.4 improved
- A code optimization performed

IBProvider and «Registration Free COM»
We wrote a new document about usage IBProvider without registration in Windows registry: https://www.ibprovider.com/eng/documentation/ibprovider-and-registration_free_com.html.
Recommended for reading to everyone who distributes IBProvider as part of own applications.
With Best Regards,
In this note we would like to inform you about running 6.7 million various tests for blobs. On our scale, it is a big testing. Usually we run each IBProvider update through 0.7 million tests.
Performing these 6.7 million tests in one thread would take 150 days. Parallel run in 10 threads reduced this time to 15 days.
We won’t bore you with details and will provide only key information.

We present new personal license for 32-bit IBProvider called «One Time Personal License (32-bit)».
The new license is meant for all those who would like to create small programs for Firebird and InterBase for WIN32 and .NET platforms.
This is the same full-featured 32-bit provider (prof and lite editions) that is included into licenses for developers and MS SQL. It does not have any technical or time restrictions.
The price for new license is quite symbolic: 99+1 EUR.

We are glad to announce the new update of IBProvider — v3.50.
Main feature of this release — elimination of very old restrictions of our OLE DB provider.
Common list of changes:
- Better support of MS SQL
- Support of data rereading for updatable sets
- Improved error handling
- Specific data processing errors fixed
- Support of FB 3.0.4 added
We have two news for you:
1. IBProvider v3.49 was released. We ensured a stricter compliance with the OLE DB specification and revised the existing code.
2. Microsoft changed its decision to go back to ODBC and promises to release an updated OLE DB provider for MS SQL. Let’s hope that they not only will rewrite the provider but also update the OLE DB specification.
