Subject Error Message Character Set not installed
Author Stefan Heymann

I am developing an application using Firebird 2.0, which is completely
written in UTF-8. So the database has UTF8 as the default character
set and the application is using UTF8 as the client connection
character set (I'm using IBO 4.6.B - didn't migrate to 4.7 so far
because of compatibility issues and we have a fair next week so I
don't want to break my code at this moment).

Everything is working fine when using a regular Firebird 2.0.1 server.
But I am getting the error message

ISC Error No 335544854
CHARACTER SET WIN1252 is not installed


CHARACTER SET WIN1252 is not installed
At procedure 'GET_USER_NAME'
At trigger 'BU_ELEMENTS'

when I use the Embedded version of either 2.0.0 or 2.0.1 (the
situation is even worse with 2.0.1 Embedded). BTW, I don't use WIN1252

Is that a bug in the Embedded version? What can I do?
