Question: What’s the difference between FIBPlus free trial version and its commercial analogue?
Answer: The trial differs in the following things:
1) FIBPlus trial version lacks four main files with sources: FIBDatabase.pas, FIBDataSet.pas, FIBQuery.pas and FIBSQLMonitor.pas. We usually include quick fixes into these modules. So the advantage of having these files is that you can quickly insert these changes, recompile the updated version and use it on your project without waiting for the newest official build.
2) FIBPlus trial version lacks pFIBPlusTools expert sources.
3) If the IDE is not started, the trial will show the nag screen. So e.g your cgi program written on FIBPlus won’t work.
4) Using FIBPlus trial version you won’t be able to change the client library from gds32.dll to fbclient.dll. You will be able to use gds32.dll only.
