Create Firebird DB in [YourProjectFolder]\Database (e.g. as WorkLog.fdb) Create a Firebird alias in aliases.conf as WorkLog=[YourProjectFolder]\Database\WorkLog.fdb Connections to the DB are currently local connections. The WorkLog.dm2 file is a CaseStudio ERM file. If you are using Delphi Enterprise or higher and you want to compile the multi-tier project group you need to build and install the TFDDataSnapQuery & TFDDataSetProvider first. You will find them in the components folder.
