Some more information:

I'm running Vista Business 32 bit.

This what I tried this morning:

I have already and installed 2.1, got the warning about 1.5 already
being installed, installed anyway. Changed firebird.conf in 2.1 directory to
run on different port and then tried starting 2.1 as an application.

Looking at system > processes, I see the server start (or at least attempt to
start) but then it shuts itself down.
