The GDAL DLL that comes with FDO is not compiled with the PostGIS driver by default - try replacing it by the GDAL dll that you are using with ogr2ogr (which presumably has the driver). You will also need libpq.dll and some other supporting PostGIS dlls.

Dear List,

trying to connect to PostGIS 8.2 from AutoCAD Map 3d 2010
with connectionstring

PG:"dbname=databasename host=localhost port=5432 user=x password=y"

following error message is launched

OSGeo.FDO.Common.Execption: Connect failed:
 bei OSGeo.FDO.Connections.IConnectionImp.Open()
 bei Autodesk.Gis.Map.DataConnect.Plugins.GenericProviderConnectionPlugin.buttonLogin_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e)

in the readme of the FDO OGR-driver 3.4.0 there is following comment:

So far the OGR provider has been (successfully) tested with:
    * SHP files
    * MapInfo files (.TAB)
    * Oracle Spatial
    * ESRI personal geodatabase (.mdb)
    * PostGIS (on PostgreSQL 8.1.4)

the commandlinetools ogr2ogr or ogrinfo work with this connection syntax
