InterBase comes embedded with RAD Studio, but chances are you haven’t activated it yet. This means you’re missing out on a very powerful and versatile database you’ve already paid for with your RAD Studio purchase.
In this blog post we’ll look at how to check if InterBase was activated with your RAD Studio installation, and to activate it if it wasn’t.
Did I get the InterBase Developer edition with my RAD Studio license?
Here’s what the RAD Studio docwiki says:
Integrated Licensing for InterBase 2020
InterBase 2020 Developer Edition is installed with RAD Studio (does not apply to the Starter edition) and included in RAD Studio integrated license. InterBase 2020 ToGo does not have to be installed on any server or end-user workstation and it has two licensing options for deployment: ToGo and IBLite. This feature makes it easier for developers to create C++Builder and Delphi InterBase applications using RAD Studio.

Why should I activate InterBase Developer Edition?
