Hi Lester!
Thanks for your interest in my problem.

After some more head-banging I got on top of it. The solution and explanation can be
explained as follows:

Amongst TIB_Connection Properties there is one named "PasswordStorage". If one leaves
that at the default ("psNone") one will need to activate the LoginPrompt property and enter a
User Name and Password into the login dialog each time one runs one's Project. Which
rather gets in the way each time one runs one's project during DesignTime.

Instead one can set this Property to "psNotSecure". Which causes the password to be
saved in the DFM file of your data module with light encryption. Although a useful practise
during development it is not recommended for deployment - for obvious reasons.

> However when I create my own model (as identical as possible - except for DataBase details) being VERY careful to copy the Objects to have the identical Properties as far as possible - I get a (now my favourite) Error 335544472 "Your user name and password are not defined wha wha wha." ..... And I am expected to ask some mysterious "administrator" to wave his/her magic wand ... or something. To make it all better.


The development environment in IBO4 is design to prevent the
password being saved within the program - as this was a
complaint in IBO3 - it was in plain text!

There is an option to change this action so that it is saved
with a key determined either locally or globally depending
on what you want.

I suspect that you are seein this because the password need
to be entered again - hence my suggestion to use the logon
prompt in the first instance.

( I can't tell you which property because I still have 4.2E
on the production machine, and the mods to this came later -
notes say 'PasswordStorage' on 4.2Ea )
