I had uninstalled 1.5 before installing 2.0. However the 1.5 folder
remains, mainly for the old security database I presume.

I checked the registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, and it points to the FB 2.0
folder. So that seems ok.

Now I presume I can delete the old FB 1.5 folder if the registry does not
refer to it?

(just looking for something to try...)

It's recommended to remove a prior version before install a new one.

Try searching on registry: below KLM\Software\
Firebird Project\Firebird

Server for Default Instance and see where it points (FB 1.5 or FB 2.0


Try fixing it or even removing completely, I can't point you the exactly

place since I had removed mine, when I was running 1.5 and 2.0


see you !
