Subject Re: [firebird-support] Generators, what could cause resetting generator values to some earlier version
Author Sofija Blazevski
This installation is on Windows Server 2008 Enterprise - it also has
UAC, as far as I know client didn't have system restore.
Database file location is under program files, I'll check user profile,
but I'm unsure how would it work consistently as there are several users
on this machine I believe all se rdp for access, I don't believe it
would work right at all if every one had database in user profile...?
