AFAIK Firebird embedded is single-process, not single-attachment. You
can open as many attachments as you wish, provided they all come from the
owning process (which in this case is IIS's isapi host process).

I think the problem here is that the account under which the isapi
application is run (IUSR_something) does not have enough privileges to
open the database file (unless the test wasn't made with fbembed at
all, as Olivier said - which would have taken us back in IPC land with
all the known limitations).

If using more than one attachments with Firebird Embedded is to be
considered insecure I would very much like to know, since I have
developed some server applications that I would like to deploy with
Firebird Embedded.
