Extract the zip archive and rename the dll if required.

Same way you connect from to any other server model, except you are
limited to a local connection from a single process and passwords are
not checked.

Same way you run SQL commands against Superserver or Classic - start
a transaction and run your SQL, then commit or rollback.\

Embedded is a distribution model not a development model. The IDE
counts as a connection is you leave it active at design time. You
administration tool counts as a connection. Develop against
SuperServer and use the local protocol, switch the dll when you
release it to a customer.

Have you read the readme?
