Errors when connecting to Interbase database

Errors when connecting to Interbase database

Errors when connecting to Interbase database

I'm trying to use Interbase for the first time in ages - having been supplied with the '.gdb' from an old client of mine I'm trying to do a favour for.

I've copied this file into the required location on my local machine and removed any Read-Only properties seeing as this came off a CD.
Interbase is running.
I believe that I'm using the correct version of this - I have previous installations of 4.2, 5, 5,5 and 6 (admittedly a little old now).

When I attempt to connect to the Interbase database via the software application (written in Delphi and using the BDE) or via the BDE Administrator I get errors:

- General SQL Error.
- File C:\Folder\Database.gdb is not a valid database

BDE Explorer also provides BDE Error number 13059 and Server Error -922

Can someone suggest what I'm doing wrong here?
It's probably going to be something simple I'm overlooking as it's been a while since I've made use of Interbase to any degree.

Thank you in advance.

RE: Errors when connecting to Interbase database

Maybe a little late to reply, but did you managed to open the gdb file with the Interbase utilities?
