Does open? or does NOT open?

No. "Localhost" is the TCP/IP local loopback server. It needs cpTCP_IP protocol and cannot work with cpLocal.

The "empty server" setting (IPServer) uses cpLocal, but it is available only for the Superserver model of Firebird. Have you upgraded Firebird too? If you are running Classic, you must use a network access.
