Embedded database and Client-operation does differ in the DLL used. For
embedded it is usually named fbembed.dll, for client it is named
fbclient.dll. Both libraries can be renamed as required, perhaps it has
the name of the interbase client lib.

To make the embedded program act as client it should be sufficient to
replace the library. The application should connect to an server running
on the same machine afterwards. If the program does specify an relative
pathname for database it might be necessary to move the file.
