Hi there

Ok, seems it is more of a conflict, but also not really. The FSecure
Web reporting stuff is also running Firebird!!! ...thats a good thing!
So that explains the problem.

Got this reply from the technical guys at FSecure...

Subject: Firebird does not run if FSecure Management Agent installed


The problem is that Web reporting is also using Firebird and two can
not run at the same time (Windows restriction). It's not
supported/official but you can try this:

1. Stop PMWR and IXI-Framework Firebird services.
2. Rename that registry variable "HKLM\Software\Firebird Project" to
something else.
3. Enable CreateInternalWindow = 0 setting in both firebird.conf files
(for PMWR it is found under C:\Program Files\T-TeleSec SDS\Management
Server 5\Web Reporting\firebird and IXI-Framework has it in some easy
directory too).
4. Restart PMWR and IXI-Framework Firebird services.
