> I work for a very large organization but have never used Firebird before. We have an office in Portugal that uses it with T&T Accounting Software. The user that used the program is no longer there and no other users are able to use it. The users cannot provide assistance because they speak very little English. I cannot seem to get the gsec utility to run. Version is and the machine OS is Windows 7 32bit Enterprise. Any step by step assistance you can give me would be greatly appreciated. I have followed many step by step instructions but everything says gsec is not recognized. So if you can start from "go to cmd.exe and type XYZ" it would be greatly appreciated.

Really hard to say much...

You will need to find where gsec is, the default is:
"\program files\firebird\firebird_2_5\bin\gsec"

in brazilian portuguese is
"\arquivos de programas\firebird\firebird_2_5\bin\gsec"

you could also try the windows default name:

If that is the case, you should type in CMD.EXE

or any of the above sugestions

Why don't you tell us what are you trying to do ?

Perhaps T&T provides a custom instalation that doesn't have gsec.... or
put the binaries in another place, did you try to find gsec.exe using
windows explorer ? Did you know the SYSDBA password ? you will need it
to use gsec

I know a guy in Portugal that perhaps could help you with Firebird. I
could ask if you wish...

see you !
