Subject Re: unavailable database
Author gnajar

I have the same problem; in my case I tried to open a GDB file I
created using FBird v1.0 under Windows 2000 Pro. Now that I have
Windows XP Pro, I downloaded FB from the link "25th December 2004
Official Windows Setup and Installer For Classic and SuperServer
V1.5.2 (.exe) (4.0mb) ", and when I want to connect to a couple of GDB
files from IBExpert and Delphi v6 UP2 (with InterXpress for Firebird)
I get:

Attempting to connect to:
C:\Documents and Settings\Guillermo Najar\Mis
documentos\GNsis\Cursos\Curso ITESO\Especificaciones SI I\Sistema\ST.GDB

Connecting... Failed!
Unsuccessful execution caused by an unavailable resource.
unavailable database.

Attempting to connect to services manager... Failed!

Unsuccessful execution caused by an unavailable resource.
Cannot attach to services manager.

Disconnecting from database... Passed!

Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you,
