Have you run instclient.exe i gds32 on all of the machines since installing
Fb 1.5 final? If not, it won't work with IBX. My suspicion is that the
first time, you still had an old gds32.dll in your system directories
(server and workstations) that has since been unloaded and has either gone,
or is replaced with a renamed fbclient.dll copy. IBX won't buy that.

If this seems "all Greek" to you, begin by reading the file
README.Win32LibraryInstallation.txt that's in the \doc directory. If you
still can't make sense of it (and you could be forgiven for that) it's
documented in more detail in the release notes (that is, v.108 of the
release notes, the one in the installer for the final release).
