We didn't research conversion from IB7, but if you want to try other path
than the one offered by Helen, you can try the following:

- start IB7 server
- use FB2 gbak (or FB1.5 gbak) and connect to IB7 using TCP. If you are
running both in the same computer, use localhost.
- See if our gbak can finish the backup and then attempt the restore using
the same version for gbak and FB (if you used gbak 1.5, try FB1.5).
