I am sorry Helen, I did not make myself clear.

For windows I can create an installer that can be deployed to any folder
the user have write access And it must contains only 3 dlls from ebedded
server (fbembedded.dll, jaybird.dll and msvcrt.dll). And everything
works fine
For linux obviously I must install classic server portion to
/opt/firebid/ and use to call it. The problem is that
ordinary users cannot write to /opt/firebird/. Simply I am trying to
create an installation procedure that works for normal user and does
not need any root privileges ... and does not need classic server
installed on the end-user machine. That was one of the reasons I
selected embedded firebird for my development.
