Sean, shouldn't the Version info from IBConsole say build 796? I installed


But in IBConsole it says is:

"Version WI-V6.2.794 Firebird 1.0"

This is what we have at home and at work and it doesn't let the file size go
past 4 GB. I do have page size set to 8K. Should it be 16K? But if so,
that will only double the size, right? And I thought the size could go to

Please confirm that you are indeed running the v1.0 final release (build
796 or later). Earlier v1.0 builds (betas and RCs) had issues that were
resolved in the final release.

I can confirm that v1.0 for Win32 supports single database files which
are larger than 4Gb!
