OK, this simplifies things, I think. I suspect that you are getting
this error when attempting to run your application from the
IDE...right? You can't do it with Fb embedded. Delphi/BCPP already
has a connection in the IDE when you come to run the app: hey
presto! your app's instance of the embedded client can't get
exclusive access to the database--by design!

This is getting to be another of those things to "tattoo on the
forehead". Develop with the full server, deploy with embedded.
