I recently went from D5 with IB 5.5 to D2006 with IB 7.5. I have a couple of IB databases on the machine that were working fine until today. Today being the first time I have attempted to open them since upgrading. I uninstalled 5.5 when I installed 7.5.
Now, when I try to connect (tried both DBX and IBX), I get the error message "unavailable database." I also get this error message when I try to open the DBs in the IBExpert IDE. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling. I have opened the manager and started the server by hand. I have tried to open it through IBC and the services. In both of those, I get a timeout message (after only 10 seconds).
Anything I'm leaving out or just keep uninstalling and reinstalling?
