Of course, you are right. The "thing" about isapi extensions is that they
instantiate themselves once each time they are called. Since only one
connection of *any* sort can be connected via fbembed.dll, it would not be
possible for multiple instances to be running simultaneously.

fwiw, isapi extensions work very well indeed with Fb 1.5 SS (haven't tried
one with CS yet) *provided only* that you use tcp/ip local loopback and not
a local connection AND your application totally isolates one instance's db
connections from another's. (Same applies to Fb 1 and IB, of course.)

I've misled on this thread because, for some reason, I got it into my head
that we were talking about a server application tier...apologies.
