Thanks Helen - allready did.
postinstall is modifying /etc/inetd.conf to add the service to inetd.
Obviously this can be done only from root user. So it looks like my app
will need root privilege to be installed correctly.
I was hoping that some solution to run classic as an ordinary user can
be found if database is in users own directory... but since installation
path is hardcoded to library true 'windows embedded server' beheviour
cannot be achieved.
