software fails in Windows 7

There is an accounting program that we run in Win XP and has never given any problems. The program reads off a database in one of the folders in 'Program FIles' folder, and it just reads of it, and starts every time. When we need to move it from one PC to another, we just copy the database and move it to the other computer and it always worked.

Now we wanted to get it into a new Win7 machine. The installation went fine, but when we try to open the software, we get errors.

The initial password is given my the software company, and it has not been changed. And the other XP Pc's work fine with the password. So we do not see that as the issue.

This is run on the PCs and not over a network. So we do not see any issues with that either.

Finally, it complains of port 3050. We ran canyouseeme.org, and it says "Error: I could not see your service on 81.214.221.26 on port (3050) Reason: Connection timed out" But it is giving the same error for Port 21,25,80 etc. So I wonder if something needs to be setup on the PC to have good connection to these services.

I turned off the Windows firewall, and also Mcafee firewall, but that did not help.

thanks for any help

Sorry for my mistake. I was sure that you are running this from a client PC with a server for the database. What I can see, it is the prevelege on that particular database. On the XP PC is that database is on a share folder ? If so, check if yous have the right to modify this folder on this windows session. And is it a SQL database ? If so, make sure that you are grant for acces on that session.

Hi to you,

first i suggest to ping the ip adress in a command line window or telnet on port 80 on the server address. If you can ping and telnet with sucess this is not a firewall issue. If not, uninstall mc cafee software and see. I remember having the same problem with a new Vista running Mc afee software

you mean ping the PC itself? yes i can ping the PC itself. For example, the PC's IP is 192.168.2.20, ping 192.168.2.20 works fine.

can I telnet from DOS prompt.?

I tried the following:
C:\Windows\System32>telnet localhost 80
'telnet' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

C:\Windows\System32>telnet 192.168.2.20 80
'telnet' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

the client computer is its own server. The database is in one of the subfolders of where the executable is.

For example, the Executable is in C:\Program Files (x86)\Camelot3\Camelot3.exe, the database is at C:\Program Files (x86)\Camelot3\Database\CAMELOTDB.FDB ; so it is a totally local database.

The database is a .fdb extension. Not sure which database is behind it. If it is SQL it is not obvious.

The 64 bit Win7 was the culprit.
