Abstract: The BORLAND.LIC file stores the volume serial number of your OS drive. If your OS drive varies, you must reregister for each drive.
InterBase 7.1 stores the volume serial number of Drive C. This worked well, except for the few customers without a drive C. So, InterBase 7.5 stores the volume serial number of your system drive. This works well unless you find you have a multiboot system and your OS drive varies. Customers which have this type of system must rename BORLAND.LIC and register under the second configuration. Whenever you switch configurations you must switch your BORLAND.LIC to the appropriate one.
You have a multiboot system with Windows 2003 on drive C and Windows XP on drive D. When you initially register InterBase 7.5 you are running Windows XP.
To get InterBase running with Windows 2003, rename BORLAND.LIC to BORLAND.LIC.XP, then register with Windows 2003. To switch back to Windows XP, rename BORLAND.LIC to BORLAND.LIC.2003 and rename BORLAND.LIC.XP to BORLAND.LIC.
