Subject Evaluation of Firebird 1.5 as a replacement of BDE+Paradox

Hi all.

I am evaluating Firebird 1.5 as a replacement of the BDE + Paradox.
I have some doubts about the deployment of the Firebird server:

- Is there a way to embed the installation of the FB 1.5
classic/superserver in one's own app install process?

- What if my app installs a FB 1.5 classic or superserver on a
computer that already has a FB 1.0 or Interbase server (6.X or later)
installed. Will it interfere with the other servers installations or
can they work simultaneously?

Currently, the app has an Excel add-on (a DLL wrapped by a XLA, may be
converted to a XLL soon) that accesses the DB directly.
This wouldn't be possible with an embedded server, as the Excel add-on
would load another instance of the server, right?

Thanks in advance.
