This is the correct order:

-- backup under old version "as transportable" backup,
-- restore under new version

IBObjects has a feature which allows you to specify the DLL name,
Firebird has FBClient.DLL.

For Firebird the GDS32.DLL is only a wrapper around FBCLient.DLL

So, using this approach, you don't have to worry around the version #.
