It's usually in the Firebird installation directory (in your case likely
C:\Program Files (x86)\Firebird\Firebird_3_0).

Given you created the database locally (no localhost in the CREATE
DATABASE statement), I do wonder if Firebird server is actually running
(although that should produce a different error).

We can't tell why without the information from the log.
