OK, so there must be a Services Manager.

I don't know EMS Interbase/Firebird Manager, but... (just an idea):
suppose it detects a Classic Server and concludes "Aha - no Services

I'm not saying this is the case, but it might be worthwhile checking
if you can backup/restore with other admin tools. Have you got any?
If not, you could e.g. download an eval version of DB Workbench and
see if that works.

Another cause *might be* a wrong client lib floating around your
Windows system dir, left over from a previous install.

Did you try to connect locally *and* via localhost/, and do
you get the same message in both cases?

Other than that, I'm afraid I'm clueless...
