It doesn't need any other dll. Could be that the Borland dbx driver has
the path hard-coded to %system%; or some kind of permissions problem. Do
you know whether the app can load the two Delphi driver libraries on those

If you don't get an answer here, I suggest repeating the question in
firebird-devel, making sure to mention which version of fbembed you are
using and which version of XP (home/pro and SP-level) is throwing this problem.
