Duh.. I'm an idiot. I've got it working now. At least my compiled
file will connect, but its not possible to connect in the delphi
design environment as far as i can tell. That's fine with me since
I only wanted to connect at design time as a test for the embedded
db because I'm lazy.

I'm still confused about this. Even though I can connect, I'd still
like an explaination of 'true local access'
