I set up flamerobin and tried to create a database but it says I need a login to firebird. I wonder if that is the problem with the other application. How do you create such a login.

The other application is probably unknown to you since it has been created by a developer for a small group. It is AC Companion which creates a database and provides numerous functions for users of Asheron's call, an online game.

The owner of that program I doubt knows how to get Windows 7 going since even on its installation instructions for firebird, he says problems with windows 7 and firebird are unknown to him.

I figured if I could get Firebird working with my own database, it would be easier to trouble shoot problems with the application.

Thx for any help, Karin
