Both fbclient.dll versions are present in their normal locations (as far as I can see), put there by the Windows installer:

c:\Program Files\Firebird\Firebird_2_5\bin\fbclient.dll (64 bit)
c:\Program Files\Firebird\Firebird_2_5\WOW64\fbclient.dll (32 bit)

None of these directories is in my path. So I don't see why FDB tries to use the wrong one (_not_ by using PATH, obviously).

But I suppose it can't hurt to try instclient.exe.

Thank you,
