Subject Re: [IBO] TIB_Event Alerter Problem and Application Exit
Author Jason Wharton
I know that using the GDS32.DLL that came with IB 5.11 and the IB 5.6 server
on NT I don't have any problems using events. Nor are there any problems
using LIBS on any platform and version. So, I draw the conclusion from this
that the little code there is in IBO is correct and that if there are
problems using another configuration it is something unrelated to the code
in IBO.

I would like to suggest that this issue be taken to the general InterBase
support lists and hopefully to the people in the OS community that can
potentially fix this whole mess.
