As noted in response to one of your previous posts, you need to consider the PasswordStorage property. TIB_Connection defaults to psNone - meaning you must activate the LoginPrompt property and enter the user name and password into the login dialog.

In your sample project, I set your IB_Connection's PasswordStorage property to psNotSecure, which causes the password to be saved in the DFM file of your data module with light encryption (OK for development, not recommended for deployment). That's why you were successful in running that project without entering a password.

There are two intermediate settings - psKeyFromMachineReg and psKeyFromUserReg - which both cause the password to be stored in Registry keys.
