Subject Re: Data Execution Protection (DEP) and Firebird in Windows Server 2003 SP1

Thanks for responding. The DEP problem ended up not being DEP. I
had accidently installed Interbase on top of Firebird when installing
Delphi on this new machine with SP1.

I did discover that with SP1 I now have to prepend 'localhost:' to my
database directory/filename in order to connect to my dataase.
Without it, I would get the 'unavailable database' message.
