Hi Milan,

Yes, I am using Windows Vista. I noticed that it didn't happen on XP.
Could you please explain more detail about it? Or there is website that
explain it technically?

Physical FDB file:

C:\Program Files\Terminal

Virtual FDB File:

C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Terminal

I wonder how Firebird/Vista create this file.

Thank you very much.

It is possible if you are using Windows Vista. Please show us the exact
paths (on the disk) of you embedded database and the 'virtual' one.
