You can't post attachments in this list. Report the error message and also check the latest entries in firebird.log.

What "client" did you try to reinstall? My suspicion (and possibly theirs) is that someone installed something that overwrote the Firebird 1.5 client. Check again with Ostendo support. Ask them (1) where the application expects to find the Firebird client when running with a local user and (2) whether it expects to load fbclient.dll or gds32.dll.

Post the text of the error message and also paste the entries from firebird.log that correspond to the times of the failed connection attempts.

And please remove all that signature guff from your future postings to these lists.
