This path syntax is not for a cpLocal path, it is a network mapping, which would not work with Fb 1.5 or 2.0 at all. It seems you will need to re-check your sources to see exactly how IBO is constructing the connection string.

As expected. For cpLocal, it could only be on a Windows server and could only be either

or an alias that is defined in aliases.conf using that exact path.

Also as expected.

Did you test on those old XP machines and with Fb 2.x, or only on Vista/Windows 7 with Fb 1.5.x?

The cpLocal implemented for Fb 1.5 and below *does not work* on Vista/Win7.
The new cpLocal in Fb 2 and up (uses XNET) should work on those OS, provided you have everything properly set up (MS runtimes, etc.)
