There are no upgrades of IBX for Firebird, as IBX does not support it. One
problem with IBX you may have is that the the client library (gds32.dll), is
hardcoded in the source, and Firebirds client library is now called
fbclient.dll. There is a wrapper gds32.dll that allows backwards
compatibility, but you will need to make sure both fbclient.dll and the gds32
wrapper is installed into your apps' directory, and not the system directory,
or you will either messup the existing IB install, or not be able to connect
to your FB install, or both
