One SHOULD have been created by the upgrade to Emerald 2.5. If not, get
the latest version of it, and run the code that makes sure everything is
present in the database (I forget what it is called -- it is the Database
maintenance in Emerald Admin). If you added one by hand, it may not have
the correct permissions to do what the .DLL requires.

Once you have ensured that the EmeraldApps group exists via SQL Enterprise
Manager, make sure that that group has "select" permissions on the
Right-click "Liscenses" and go to "Permissions".
If "Select" is not clicked on the "EmeraldApps" group, check it, and then
If you do not see a USER here that is a member of the "EmeraldApps" (and
which is the user name you specified in EAADMN.EXE), you should also follow
the steps labeled "ADD USER" below.
Close it, and reload your DSN's.
Enter new user name (I chose "EMERAUTH")
Enter New password
Click "Permit" on Emerald permissions
Change default DB to EMERALD
IMPORTANT: Change the GROUP at the right to "EmeraldApps"
Go back to the list of tables above, and ensure that the user shows up as a
member of "EmeraldApps". It will not NECESSARILY have a checkmark in the
"Select" field -- that's fine, so long as the parent GROUP has the
checkmark, and the username does not have a DENIED checkbox.
