Subject Programatically updating Aliases.conf and virtualization
Hi all

Using FireBird as the back end the Aliases.conf file needs to be updated at runtime.  Now Windows 7 does not like me updating this file
C:\Program Files (x86)\Firebird\Firebird_2_5\aliases.conf

It will update a copy instead
C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Firebird\Firebird_2_5\aliases.conf

Not wanting to update folder permissions of Firebird what is the best way to tackle updating without virtualizing this file.  This becomes important because when users connect over the LAN they will only connect using the alias as stored in this file where as the local update of the file on the server has been virtualized so essentailly the users won't be able to connect to the intended database.

Please advise

Thanks and regards
