I'm scratching my head here.

The server(Server No.1) only has IB 6.01 installed and running.

I copied the gds32.dll from FB from my client machine(Client
No.1) to my other client machine(Client No.2) and it is still able to
connect to Server No.1. The only difference that I have until now, is that
I installed FB on Client No.1 that can no longer connect and I
only copied gds32.dll over to Client No.2 that can still connect. And, I
only have one gds32.dll on each client machines.

Can it be possible that the environment option referenced in the error is
something misconfigured on Client No.1, so that it can't connect to Server
No.1? Any ideas? Remember, this problem only started after installation
of FB using the installation package. I just reinstalled FB and
no success.

Any help is greatly appreciated. And, I think that this is becoming more
of a topic for IB-Support.
