This page describes the steps you take to register different versions of InterBase:

Important Information

When you register you receive an email with your personal serial numbers and web registration code that you need to activate your individual test deployment product licenses for your company use.

  • Product: This includes the type and number of users. For example InterBase XE3 Desktop - 1 User (SDK)
  • Serial Number: xxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxx
  • Registration Code: xxxx
  • Expiration Date:
Important: After reviewing this information, choose to either download your activation file or email the contents and activation file to your email.

Once you have made this selection, click Register.

Important: Please keep your serial numbers safe! These keys are specifically linked to your account to aid your testing. Each activation creates test license files that are valid for 60 days. After 60 days, please revisit the registration page to renew your test license.

The activation process provides you with a registration license file that you must save and deploy with your application to achieve a silent installation of InterBase.

Note: InterBase XE3 SDK Pack serial numbers are issued for administration purpose only and do not activate individual manually-installed products. In order to activate your Test Deployment licenses please go to: https://reg.embarcadero.com/ and enter the serial number you received in the email and the Registration Code: 737479.

If you are not using an Embarcadero IDE, you may need to download the InterBase install files. You can always download these install files from Embarcadero Product Downloads:

or from your Embarcadero Developer Network via the registered user downloads page:

If you have questions about installing or registering your product, please contact Embarcadero Support. However you may want to explore the links below first. To find the right support contact for your region, please go to:

To assist you as you code, there are a number of resources available, including our InterBase VAR end-user web portal. Please contact your sales rep for specific details on accessing the online interface for viewing install data.

If you are building Business to Business (B2B) or Business to Consumer (B2C) apps specifically, it is recommended that you spend some time learning how to easily protect the following:

  • database,
  • at-rest customer data with 256-bit AES strength on-disk-encryption with InterBase,
  • SSL for data in transit (Client/Server over TCP/IP).


IBLite

  1. If you are a RAD Studio/Delphi XE5 user and want to include the IBLite license, download and save the license file into the %PUBLIC%\Documents\InterBase\redist\InterBaseXE3 folder.
  2. Then follow the steps in the RAD Studio Deployment Wizard. Be sure the file is bundled with your application for the target platform and delivered to the InterBase/license folder path of the target platfom.

Important: When you click Register you accept the Supplemental License Terms for IBLite.

ToGo Edition

For RAD Studio XE5 users:

Save the license activation file as reg_ibtogo.txt in the %PUBLIC%\Documents\InterBase\redist\InterBaseXE3 folder. It applies to Android, iOS, Windows, and MacOSX deployments.

For RAD Studio XE4 users:

Save the license activation file as reg_ibtogo.txt in the %PUBLIC%\Documents\InterBase\redist\InterBaseXE3 folder. It applies to Windows, MacOSX, and iOS deployments.

For RAD Studio XE3 users:

Save the license activation file to the platform-specific subfolder of %PUBLIC%\Documents\InterBase\redist \InterBaseXE3 folder. It applies to Windows and MacOSX deployments.
  1. First, open a cmd.exe window and “cd” to the directory where you downloaded the activation file.
  1. Then execute the following commands:
copy reg*.txt %PUBLIC%\Documents\InterBase\redist\InterBaseXE3\osx32_togo\InterBase\license\reg_ibtogo.txt
copy reg*.txt %PUBLIC%\Documents\InterBase\redist\InterBaseXE3\win32_togo\InterBase\license\reg_ibtogo.txt
copy reg*.txt %PUBLIC%\Documents\InterBase\redist\InterBaseXE3\win64_togo\InterBase\license\reg_ibtogo.txt
NOTE: You may need to replace the reg*.txt with your specific filename in case the copy does not work. For example, on Windows 7, %PUBLIC%\Documents\InterBase\redist\InterBaseXE3 is found at C:\Users\Public\Documents\InterBase\redist\InterBaseXE3.
  1. Now you are ready to use the deployment wizard in RAD Studio to select this license file to be bundled with InterBase ToGo applications for deployment.
