Well, the application trying to use freetds is the first thing I've 
tried writing using Lazarus. I have two dll files, freetds.conf & the 
Lazarus app all in the same directory:


Provided encryption at the server end is switched off (and it's problems 
with that which make me want to see the logs), the app connects & gets a 
grid full of data from the remote MSSQL database. So, it must be reading 
freetds.conf file.

I'm just logged in as myself & invoking project1.exe. I certainly have 
permissions to create files anywhere. I did try locations other than 
c:\freetds.log, including just
dump file = freetds.log
thinking that might generate the log in the same directory as the 

Would that not rule out file permissions as the source of the problem?
