I happen to encounter similar problem. I uninstalled TC, FB & FR. Reinstall minus the FlameRobbin. I am single user though and installed TC into my laptop, not server.

Is this the same problem as above?  Or is this a new thread?

I had this problem too and found it was related to Firebird not running while TC was.

To solve this I manually started and ran Firebird.  For me I run C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Firebird2Control.cpl.  This opens the Firebird Server Control window and you can set it to run as a service or an application.   Start it or Stop it. 

Once this is running then run TC and it should be able to work.

thank you todd,where do i get the firebird?  or where do i open that link?

When you do the install Firebird should be one of the components that is installed.  At the time of installation one can choose to have it installed as a service that runs in the background or as an application that needs to be started.  If you choose the application you then need to start this each time.  I would check the services first and see if it is there and can be started.  To do this - click the Windows Start icon, enter in  services in the text entry box and it should give you an option to click on the services application and this should bring up the Services control panel.  I always use the View>Detailed to see all the services and the details related to them.  I find the icon view not as convenient to work with.  Scroll down the list of services.  I have my services sorted by the Name column.  Once you get to the F services you should see "Firebird Guardian - DefaultInstance"   and "Firebird Server - DefaultInstance"  If you click on the Firebird Server  and double click to bring up a control window you will see some Start and Stop buttons.  If it is already running the Start button will be greyed out.  If it is not the Stop button will be greyed out.  Click on the Start. This should cause both the FB services to change to "started".    If the server is already running and you are still experiencing this password request issue then this is likely a different problem then what I experienced, however, I would still consider reinstalling to see if this may clear up the problem.

If you do not see a Firebird (FB) service there I would suspect the Firebird application has not been installed or installed as expected.  If there is no FB service I would try and reinstall TC and make sure the FB application is installed during this process.

Something else I have and I'm not sure if it came by default or if I fudged around to get this but there is a Firebird Control panel application that can be run to control starting, stopping and configuring Firebird.  For me it is located in the following location:  C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Firebird2Control.cpl

By running the Firebird2Control.cpl a control window is started that allows one to have some control over Firebird.  I have actually put a shortcut on my desktop to allow this to be run easily to save me starting the Services application. Search for the Firebird2Control.cpl.  If it is in the C:\Windows\SysWOW64 directory already then you would go there Right Mouse Click on it and  select SendTo and then select Desktop(shortcut Icon).  Click the shortcut icon and it will place a shortcut on the desktop that can be used to start stop and control Firebird.  

Hope this helps.

One of the big errors is that users  install to C:\Program Files Firebird can't work on database storedinthese directories.  Follow the standard default installation directory c:\tcash

I had a similar issue, ended up uninstalling all 3 ie. tcash, flame robin and thunderbird, turns out it was due to me being on 64 bit win 10, I then installed 64 bit thunderbird, and 64 bit flame robin, taking care to select whether stand alone or server-workstation. and thereafter Tcash5, All in order now......hope it helps.

The Case against Bitcoin

Will blockchain be enduring? – of course. Will Bitcoin be enduring? - not likely.

Unless you are familiar with the terminology of blockchain, having an argument about its future is like arguing with a physicist about the Big Bang. Right now the myopia caused by ignorance centres the crpyto discussion on Bitcoin, store of value and speculative demand. The real delivery of money, the medium of exchange and the unit of account that blockchain brings to anything from IOT…


Crypto Currencies

Economist Dawie Roodt takes the typical neoliberal line on Crypto Currencies. This would be the expected response of an economist who's salary depends on pleasing his big business bosses.

Dawie, Crypto Currencies are not some parochial kids idea, they stand somewhere between a new internet protocol and a digital pitch fork revolution.…
