are you saying you have tried and it doesn't work?
I would say that if you place the embeded server (client dll) adjacent to
the ODBC drivers and ensure that the name of the driver is what it expects
(in this case Gemini expects gds32.dll) and then use a local connection
string, it should work fine.
