Oops, I misquoted myself (no pun intended). You are, of course, correct,
gsec does not like quotes. Just tried it on my home computer.

The XP machine where I'm having a hard time is in an auto-repair shop, so I
won't be able to try it tonight. Next time I get there I'll try it and let
you know how it goes.

Thanks for your attention to this.

Immediately after install ran gsec -user 'SYSDBA' -password '<the default
firebird password>' with no problems. However, on Windows XP Pro SP3, I
downloaded the 32-bit exe installer. Install ran fine. When I try to run
gsec I get something like "User name or password not defined, see your
system admin", etc. or something like that.

I don't know why it worked on your first install....

C:\Programs32\Firebird\Firebird_2_0\bin>gsec -user 'SYSDBA' -pass
Your user name and password are not defined. Ask your database administrator
set up a Firebird login. unable to open database

Lose the quote marks:

C:\Programs32\Firebird\Firebird_2_0\bin>gsec -user sysdba -pass masterkey
