It don't try to use the "wrong one"it simply don't find fbclient.dll
as Pavel said :

Certainly that during Firebird install, you didn't checked or you
unchecked the choice "copy fbclient into Windows system directory"
and since c:\Program Files\Firebird\Firebird_2_5\bin is not in your
path, FDB install can't find fbclient.dll

that's all
