Hi Roman

Sorry that it took me so long to get back to you. I had to fetch the machine from the client first.

The same setup works on many other machines fine (Windows 2000 and XP). In the meantime I have this problem already on two more
machines, in total I cannot access the Firebird 2 database at all on four machines (embedded mode).

The firebird.log is empty. I have these files in the application root directory: fbclient.dll, fbembed.dll, ib_util.dll,
icudt30.dll, icuin30.dll, icuuc30.dll, msvcr71.dll and there is no Firebird environment variable set. The database is in a subfolder
"db-fb" including the unmodified firebird.conf, aliases.conf, security2.fdb, firebird.msg, firebird.log.

I am looking forward to your help.

Best regards
Daniel Putra
