Subject Re: Fw: [firebird-support] Firebird 1.5 Installation - Windows Vista
Author legacydrum
Sorry for the confusion. Basically I can get Firebird to work fine
using the Firebird 1.5 install. However, I am trying to embed it
into my installshield installation and I am having difficulties
getting the Firebird Windows Service to install and start. I hope
this clarifies my question. This is where I think the embedded guide
will come in handy.
