* Are we talking about Firebird Embedded or a real Firebird server process?
* If the later, have you tried using a TCP/IP connection, even locally?

As the error states, for whatever reason, it doesn't have read/write
permission on the database file.

So, with Embedded, make sure that the user running the application has
proper permissions on the folder/file. With a regular Firebird server
setup, check if the Windows account used by the Firebird server Windows
service has proper privileges.
