Hi Guido,

I do not have too much experience with local protocol because pretty
much all my installations are either TCP SS/CS or embedded, bypassing
your issue. I wonder though whether it is trying to write to some log
file. By default, 'users' have no write access inside $PROGRAMFILES.
Maybe you could try temporarily granting them access to the Firebird
sub folder to see if it is something there.
