Do you have a BDE Alias called test on your system? What are its settings?

Subject: [IBO] getting started with IBO

As a new IBO user I figured the Getting Started Guide would be the best bet
to get up to speed quickly.

So I started by trying to connect a TIB_Connection to my database by
following the instructions and was immediately thwarted. I suspect I have
missed something reasonably obvious to those in the know, so here are the
properties I am setting:

databasename: d:\ib\ibtest.gdb
alias : test
I think the GSG has mislabeled these as database and databasename.
server: empty
protocol: cpLocal
path d:\ib\ibtest.gdb
username: sysdba
password: masterkey

Setting connected:true yields a "cannot open file" error. I have tried
myriad variations on the central theme and still missed the mark. Anybody
else see the problem?
