Firedac in XE5

Hello,

I installed FireDAC Client/Server Add-On Pack for RAD Studio XE5 Professional using the option "Upgrade". After that I do not see FireDAC in Data Explorer. There is only dbExpress node. I can not even see any information about FireDAC in "About Embarcadero RAD Studio". The only information that FireDAC is installed is in Tools options where FireDAC Explorer and Monitor exists. Is this correct?

And now when I'm trying connect to MS SQL receive a messages like "Driver MSSQL is not registered". I don't have TFDPhysMSSQLDriverLink in FireDAC Links....

I think my FireDAC Add-On did not install properly....

Please help me if anybody have any solution

This is correct the node was added later (I believe in XE6).

I can not

even see any information about FireDAC in "About Embarcadero RAD
Studio". The only information that FireDAC is installed is in Tools
options where FireDAC Explorer and Monitor exists. Is this correct?

I cannot comment on this one, I believe it should be listed under
"Installed products" in About Embarcadero RAD Studio".

And now when I'm trying connect to MS SQL receive a messages like
"Driver MSSQL is not registered". I don't have TFDPhysMSSQLDriverLink
in FireDAC Links....

Make sure that you select a Windows project. MSSQL Driver is not
available for other projects.

Ok, I've got it. I uninstalled RAD Studio and Installed it again. Now I have MSSQL in FireDAC. Thank's for trying to help.

Unfortunately, I have a project that uses dbExpress to connect to MySQL and MSSQL, and the XE5 environment is proffessional. I guess I need to rewrite all the connections to MSSQL from dbExpress to FireDAC :(

I forgot to write that I am going from Rad Studio 2007 to XE5
