The PostgreSQL Provider was introduced in FDO 3.5. The minimum supported client software versions are:

  • MapGuide Open Source 2.2
  • AutoCAD Map 3D 2011
  • FDOToolbox 0.9.3 (?)

The provider is known to work with: <!-- please update this section -->

  • PostgreSQL Server 8.3 to 8.4
  • PostGIS 1.3 to 1.5
    • geometry types only
    • GEOS=3.0 to 3.2
    • PROJ 4.7

See older PostGIS Provider for an alternative with AutoCAD Map 3D 2008–2010 and MapGuide 2.0–2.1.

You must have your PostgreSQL\ bin directory in your system path, look for libpg.dll (windows)
