Basically I'm using Sam Broadcaster Version 4, it was working flawlessly for about a week and now suddenly out of the blue, when i go to load the Sam it says:"Unable to connect or querry database, make sure database server is running and configured properly"
I made sure Firebird server was running and still sam would not load up. So i did a quick search on google and to no avail. i heard that Sam and Firebird arn't that compatible with Vista so i tried running both programmes in compatible Window XP SP2 mode and still nothing. I also tried to uninstall Firebird and use mysql instead and still it wouldn't load up.
When I tried to reninstall it the weird thing is that it connected when in installed SAM for the first time using the same database configuration. But as soon as shutdown sam broadcaster and try load it up again the same message appears.
I'm really losing patience
with the software and i'd really appreciate any help.
