Just wanted to tell you I finally found the problem with the Firebird
embedded version not working with my app, in the hope no one else will
fall in it. It was not the library I used nor the mscv8 runtime assemblies.

To be honest I feel a bit ashamed I did not see it the first time... The
problem was we were testing the app in a folder that was on the desktop
and the user had the desktop in a network unit instead of an own disk
partition. After moving the whole app folder to C: it worked flawlessly.

Thanks anyway for your feedback. :-)
