We are running interbase 7.5 and loaded it onto a Vista machine. The interbase was loaded in a directory c:\borland\

When we use the BDE to connect to the GDB file and enter username and password a error

Unknown username or password appeard. We have checked the username and password and we are entering the correct one

Is it because we have to run interbase 2007 or is there a way to correct the error

You say you are using the BDE to connect to the GDB file.
Are you doing this by way of Alias?

There are many issues with BDE and Vista.
Normally the BDE saves its settings in the registry, so you will need to run BDEadmin.exe, click Object -> Options, and select Save for use with Windows 3.1 and Windows 95/NT.
This causes settings to be saved in an INI file in your BDE directory.
What I do is I programmatically create my BDE alias at run-time, and delete it first if it exists. I also set LOCAL_SHARE to TRUE programatically. In this way it doesn't even matter where your settings are saved because they are recreated each time you run the program!

The first step is to run the bde (bdeadmin.exe) take a look around and see if your NET directory and your alias (if applicable) is showing and saved.
Set the Save for use to Windows 3.1 (INI files), and try again

Yes in the App I use a database and table then database I use an alias name

The BDE is setup to the GBD using the server name property and username is set

the NET Directory I changed from c: to c:\kevin (the directory exists)
The alias is showing in the BDE
