Hello Helen, nice to meet you !!

In that EXE file (instvc.exe) i do not see the parameters for the configuration of firebird so that is executed like service or application.

I am going to try to give more details of the problem that i have:

I have an application (SetupBuilder) that installs my software and firebird at the same time. Then, i do this in my program installer:

If WindowsVersion = Win95 Or Win98 Or ME !! install with out CPL
Run Firebird- /SP- /SILENT /NOCPL /COPYFBCLIENT /NOCANCEL /DIR="C:\Program Files\Firebird\Firebird_2_0"
Else !! install with CPL
Run Firebird- /SP- /SILENT /COPYFBCLIENT/NOCANCEL /DIR="C:\Program Files\Firebird\Firebird_2_0"

For operating systems Win95 or 98 or ME, i need that Firebird is executed like Application, for the other operating systems, i need that Firebird is executed like service. Then my question is: What command line (additional to the commands /SP- /SILENT, etc) is needed so that Firebird is executed like " Application" or " Service"

If i leave my line of programming thus (Run Firebird- /SP- /SILENT /NOCPL /COPYFBCLIENT /NOCANCEL /DIR="C:\Program Files\Firebird\Firebird_2_0") for the Win 95, Win 98 or WinME, Firebird does not work correctly because is executing like service and not like application.

Thanks for your answer.
