You're still not telling me anything. What is AVG Server? What you
need is a client application to connect to a database through the server.

With Classic, an instance of the server is created when you make a
successful request to connect to a database. That means, of course,
that you need to have a database. Thus, there is nothing to check
until there is actually a server instance running.

So - to proceed - tell us the name of the database file and where it
is located (its file path on the host machine and whether it is on
the same host machine as the client application).
