you must make sure to use the correct gds32.dll that came with Firebird,
otherwise it just won't work. (be careful if you still need the IB5 dll
for IB5.6 databases! in that case you can set up a batch file that replaces
the ib5 gds32.dll with the fb version in the %win%\System32 folder and
vice versa)

regards & hth,

when parsers parse, and compilers compile, then why don't objects object?
