Hi Helen,

Should we be disabling DEP for Firebird on win2003? With the exception
of the Firebird control panel applet not working, we have had no
issues with running our (Delphi) product or Firebird on our 2003
hosted servers, so I am not too sure what you mean. Apparently others
have had issue with using "localhost", and others have had issues with
Shadowing, and others with the file system permissions (the same sorts
of problems you get with linux file system permissions).
