Subject FB Embed on Windows Vista?
Author Myles Wakeham
I was reading a blog today from an Interbase dude, and he writes:

"Due to new process isolation in Windows Vista and the fact services starts
in different session/desktop than users connecting to InterBase as Local
Server in IBConsole and from your applications will not work.

Workaround: Use Remote Server and TCP/IP protocol instead of Local Server.
Connect to or localhost. For you connection string in other
applications use “” infront of the path to your database file."

Then I thought of Firebird. Since we have the wonderful FB Embedded, is
this going to be an issue with running apps that use FB Embedded on Windows
Vista? I haven't tried this out yet, but has anyone encountered any issues
