OK, provide "db" is set up as a path alias in aliases.conf. This I doubt
from your description, since you didn't mention it.

So this would not be a correct connection string. It should be either
d:\path_to_database (for local connect)
server:d:\path_to_database (for remote connect)
or localhost:d:\path_to_database (for local loopback).

No such problem with IBO, but I'm on Win2K, always connect to localhost or
remote server and I do have a dedicated port for events. I suggest that,
once you get your connection string sorted, you do the same thing.

I don't think events work with Windows local-connect AT ALL, since there is
no TCP/IP port available with that protocol. (Events need their own port).
