Thank you Vlad,

I understand what you are trying to explain. I disconnect database during backup process. I use vb6 for my application. Can you pl provide any to link to look after those services api calls?

gbak, as any other tool loads fbclient.dll, not fbembed.dll.

a) rename fbembed.dll into fbclient.dll, but don't forget that until v2.5 it is impossible to share same database between more than one process using Embedded, or

b) use service API in your application to perform backup
