SQLite connection to s3db file

Recommended Posts


please can you help me with sqlite... specifically with connection to *.s3db file.

I have an application which logs some operations to *.s3db file.
I would like to read and process data from this database file in some period.

My first step was to find some sqlite manager where I can see structure of database.
I found app SQLite Administrator... but for the first time I didn't have success with opening of database.
I had to change sqlite3.dll in folder of SQLite Administrator... I copied sqlite3.dll from directory of application where is *.s3db file...

Now I can see structure and data and I'm trying make connection through AutoIt... (both files are in script dir... i.e. *.s3db and sqlite3.dll )

But I can't even do _SQLite_Open, let alone _SQLite_Query


Please does anyone know where the problem can be?

Thanks in advance

#include <SQLite.au3>
#include <SQLite.dll.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Local $myconn, $hQuery, $aRow, $sMsg

_SQLite_Startup("sqlite3.dll", True, 1)
ConsoleWrite("_SQLite_LibVersion=" & _SQLite_LibVersion() & @CRLF)

$myconn = _SQLite_Open("file.s3db")
If @error Then
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "SQLite Error", "Can't open or create a permanent Database!")
    Exit -1

_SQLite_Query(-1, "SELECT * FROM tabRegNazwy;", $hQuery)
While _SQLite_FetchData($hQuery, $aRow) = $SQLITE_OK
    $sMsg &= $aRow[0]
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "SQLite", "Get Data using a Query : " & $sMsg)

Google s3db to see that this isn't genuine SQLite but a proprietary fork (which the authors deny to mention). Better use their tools to manage their babies.

This wonderful site allows debugging and testing regular expressions (many flavors available). An absolute must have in your bookmarks.

SQLitespeed is another feature-rich premier SQLite manager (includes import/export). Well worth a try.
SQLite Expert (freeware Personal Edition or payware Pro version) is a very useful SQLite database manager.
