True, the installer won't overwrite an existing msvcrt.dll because in the
past it caused problems by breaking other installed apps. According to
M$Marketing, that's not supposed to happen...but it's better to play safe.

Both msvcrt.dll (v.6.0.8797.0) and compatible msvcp60.dll are in your
firebird \bin directory. You will need to experiment on a case-by-case
basis, I think. V.4-point-something is really ancient - 1995? Nine years'
backward compatibility?

It would be worthwhile to join the firebird-docs list. Another person is
currently translating the installer interface into German, so firebird-docs
seems to be the de facto home of such things currently. :-)
