There is no "single user mode". If you have the database server (ibserver.exe) or ibguardian running on the same machine as your application, you can connect locally, i.e. not through a server interface. In 5.6 this isn't intended for deployment so you will need to purchase licensing once your app moves out of your development environment.

To connect locally, just use the physical (not mapped) path to the database file, e.g.


Are you using the BDE for connection? If so, the best thing to do is to set up an InterBase driver alias for this path in the BDE Administrator program. This way, if the database is moved somewhere else, you only have to edit the alias, not recompile your application.
