This looks like a permission problem: "Access is denied"

Make sure that the user that is starting the database has read/write permissions on all of the database files.

I'd double checked the permissions and found a strange thing, the folder has the correct permissions, but the file has different permission, dont know why, I needed to give specific settings to it, and it runs. Mistery...

Thanks a lot.

If you are using WINDOWS, Make Sure your .DB and .LOG files has READ and WRITE permisions under their security settings...
