Thanks Nando for the quick info,

I've downloaded the latest FDB release Firebird-
In Firebird-\builds\win32\msvc7 directory,
I tried to build gfix using MS VS2004 but it raises an error
"gen/autoconfig.h not found".
I checked the whole HD but no good.

I guess I am missing something.
I appreciate your assistance on this subject.

With kindest regards

Borland C++ did not use the same compiler as the current C++ Builder.
That compiler is more than a decade old and I don't know any other
decade-old compilers that are able to build the current Firebird on
Windows. The current (2007) C++ Builder compiler *might* be able to
build Firebird but apparently there's no point in trying because
Firebird already supports the platform official compiler (Microsoft's)
and an open source one (gcc on MinGW) on Windows.
