That's odd, I renamed it "mydb.fdb" and trying to register in DBW, which
then connects to it to verify your connection details. Path to database:

Error message:
ISC ERROR CODE:335544344

I/O error for file "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\FB_DEMO"
Error while trying to open file
The system cannot find the path specified.
