    Hello everyone.

    As you can see, Im new to the forum. Lately, I have been witnessing a problem which is becoming more and more frequent. I would like to say that I have already browsed for a solution but had no success and the only hint I've found about it, didnt help much.

    Anyway, my problem is the following:
    I work with both Firebird 1.5 and 2.1. Gerenally, firebird is placed at a server and several machines access it remotely, the usual situation. Some machines from some of our clients have been presenting a strange problem though. Firebird isnt returning the error messages and exceptions, instead, it returns "@1 @1 @1". This renders us and our clientes actionless as we do not know what is happening.

    This happens even at ibexpert. If you use a column that does not belong to the referenced table in a select, it is supposed to return the wrong column and the line which it is, but it returns column unknown: @1 at line: @2.

    And its kind of strange because it only happens to a small number of machines inside a network, generally, its only one. The only direction we found about this mentioned that gds32.dll from the problematic machines could be outdated. We've changed the dll to no success though.

    About the operating system and Firebird version, at start, we thought the problem was related to newer Windows versions, like Windows 7, but this week we experienced at a machine utilizing Windows XP. I cant say for sure if the problem is related to a firebird version, but i guess it is happening more on firebird 2.x.

    Well, if anyone can help us, we would appreciate. Any direction is wellcome.

    Thanks in advance.

    Are you sure that the fbclient.dll and firebird.msg files are present on every client and that they match the versions on the server?
