Interbase 6.5 Installation Problem

Interbase 6.5 Installation Problem

Interbase 6.5 Installation Problem

(OP)
Hi All, I have installed interbase 6.5 on windows 2003, and a client on XP..   Unfortunately, I cant connect to the database file on the server from XP, even when I use
the database desktop..   I' wondering if I upgrade to
Interbase Ver 7.1, will it a safer and trouble free install..  Thanks

RE: Interbase 6.5 Installation Problem

6.5 isn't certified on Win2003...

It might have something to do with "system restore" or whatever it's called.

What's the error message you're getting?

"alias"?

And yes, 7.1 is certified for Win2003 - check the Borland site.
