First, with these limitations, why are you trying to set up Firebird -- embedded or not -- in Program Files?

If there is some non-obvious imperative to do that, then it's probably worth knowing that Firebird only tries to create firebird.log if it is not already present in its root directory, and it does so only the first time it wants to log something.

So a trick would be to create it manually, as part of your installation routine. It might even be worth putting in a feature request in Tracker, to have the Windows installer do this automatically on Vista if Program Files is selected for the installation.
