Hi Alan,

When I removed the registry entries both versions run fine, If I let the
Registry the FB 2.0 try to open the FB 1.5 securiry.fdb ang I cannot login.

The registry first place FB (not so sure here, maybe the first is the
environment variable) to look for the instalation path and for the
secutiry.fdb place.

When it does not found the registry entry and neither found the env
variable it looks on the executable path (so each FB version look in the
correct path for the files).

As far this is what I could understand when I run both versions in
parallel, maybe someone could shed some light on it and explain better
how it works.

See you !
