The FIRST thing to do is to study the release notes. In there you will
find out that copying the gds32.dll that comes with Fb 1.5 is *not* the
right thing to do. To make it simplest for yourself to set up Firebird
clients for your IBO applications, make a copy of fbclient.dll nd and
rename it to gds32.dll. Deploy that to the clients' system directory or,
better, deploy it in the same directory as where your application
executable runs.

Also create a directory on the client for other Firebird bits and pieces -
let's say you create it as c:\Program Files\FirebirdClient. After creating
this directory, create a subdirectory named \bin and copy the program
instreg.exe into it.
Go back to the FirebirdClient directory and copy firebird.msg
there. (Later, when you get the hang of things, you may want to place
firebird.conf and aliases.conf there).

Now, open a command window and cd to that new ...\bin directory. At the
command line type

One more thing to do:

Edit the hosts file and add the IP address and server name, e.g. MyServer # Firebird host server
