Subject Unable to load DLL 'fbembed' from MSTest unit tests in VS 2008
Author greg.bradburn

I am trying to ressurect our dusty unit tests (over 4000) tests, most of which rely on embedded firebird.

I keep getting the infamous "Unable to load DLL 'fbembed'" error. I tried copying the fbembed.dll to the c:\windows\system32 folder but still get the error.

Google tells me the usual solution is to copy the dll as well as the intl folder to the exe from which my app is running. That is problematic in this case since I am running in the VS 2008 test environment.

Any ideas on how to overcome this problem?
