> Hello everyone! I hope I can make this as simple as possible so the problem can be quickly fixed. First off, I am using Firebird 1.5, not 2.5, SAM Broadcaster can't use 2.5 as it gives a tbQuery error for 'ver'. So please please please don't suggest upgrading to 2.5 as SAM Broadcaster can't *use* it, unless you know of a working solution to that error. But that's not the problem. I am running Windows 7 SP1, fully updated, and I install Firebird 1.5, reboot the computer, Then run the SAM installer and the SAM doesn't throw out a tbQuery error so woot! But then the installer says it can't connect to the database. O.o Ok...

First check would be can you connect to a database without the installer.
Flamerobin will give a few more hints if it can't connect. We don't know what
the installer is trying to connect to and what the error is?
