(IBO4.2Gc, Firebird 1.0-796, BCB4)

I am still getting this error even after updating my IBO/Firebird
software. Right after the 'Login Dialog' I get a uninformative
errorbox which plainly states: Cannot Open File.
My app works on every PC that I have the BCB IDE loaded, and this
is the first time I have tried to deploy my app on a IDE-less PC.
I can use IB_SQL and ISQL to successfully access and update my GDB
file. It doesn't matter what user I use (SYSDBA or HANDBURY), the
message is the same. Interestingly, I tried to open the Employee.gdb
file which comes with Firebird by changing the DatabaseName in the
IBO Login Dialog and I still get 'Cannot Open File'.

...So I'm stuck. Thanks for any help. Eric.
