Hello,

Trying to take backup, and log stats with : 

gbak:gbak version WI-V2.5.9.27139 Firebird 2.5
gbak:    Version(s) for database "f:\git\ThFbDbMaintenance\Build\Apps\DEMO_FB4.fdb.tmp"
Firebird/x86/Windows NT (access method), version "WI-V2.5.9.27139 Firebird 2.5"
on disk structure version 11.2
gbak:readied database f:\git\ThFbDbMaintenance\Build\Apps\THDEMO_FB4.fdb.tmp for backup
gbak:creating file f:\git\ThFbDbMaintenance\Build\Apps\THDEMO_FB4.fdb.tmp.fbk
gbak:starting transaction
gbak:database f:\git\ThFbDbMaintenance\Build\Apps\THDEMO_FB4.fdb.tmp has a page size of 16384 bytes.
gbak:writing domains

And suddenly middle of writing data (After writing :

gbak:0 records written
gbak:    writing index PK_VEROTILINPAATOSOTSIKKO
gbak:    writing index UQ_VEROTILINPAATOSOTSIKKO
gbak:    writing index FK_VEROTILINPAATOSOTS_ACDOC1
gbak:    writing index FK_VEROTILINPAATOSOTS_ACDOC2
gbak:    writing index FK_VEROTILINPAATOSOTS_COMPANY
gbak:    writing data for table VEROTILINPAATOSOTSIKKO
gbak: ERROR:CHARACTER SET ISO8859_1 is not installed
gbak: ERROR:gds_$start_request failed
gbak:Exiting before completion due to errors

Never seen something like this, is there way to fix this. I am using variation of the FB2.5 -> FB4 conversion bat posted while back, main difference is that in this case not using stdout->stdin optimization, because that failed even earlier in the process. So there must be something on the server I am running these at, because on local computer it works well. 

So FB2.5.9 and FB4.0.1   embedded  are used 

gbak: ERROR:CHARAC

Found the possible cause, embedded engines don't have int and other sub folders, have to fix extractors.

I'll try to remember to report the results

Not having the intl folder and its files is indeed the general cause for
this error.
