Subject Error opening a FB database after copy to a different pc
Author cornievs
I made a copy of FB database with windows copy and paste. On the original pc the copy works fine (Firebird 2.05/Windows XP Pro SP2) but on my pc (Firebird 2.13 and 2.5 rc2/ Windows 7 Pro) i get the error "Connection authorization failure. file .... is not a valid database." (The FB server was shutdown when i made the copy so, no users was using the DB while i made the copy.) I regular gets this error and now use only only backup/restore to transfer the db's. But I urgently needs to access one db

Any suggestions please?
