I have an Omnis Studio application that has been used on an intranet connecting to a FrontBase database using the FrontBase dam for several years without a problem. FrontBase is on a server running Windows NT 2008. The network was changed earlier this year due to some internal business changes and the IP address was changed. I changed the login accordingly for all the machines on the intranet running the application and things went fine for a few months. Then one day no one could connect. The error message is “FBExec not found on Host”. I am running O$ 6.02 and FB 5. I assumed based on the documentation that it was a license issue as the previous license was based on the IP address but even with a new license I still could not make a connection. I uninstalled FrontBase saving my database files and reinstalled it to no avail. I contacted FrontBase and they said that from version 5 on it doesn’t need or even look for a license (which is why the license area is blank). Does anyone out there use FrontBase and have any idea what could have happened or what I could do to fix this problem? I have spent hours and tried everything I could do and I can not get it to connect to even a simple one table database. I tried installing FB 8 as well and still can’t connect. Any help would be appreciated.
