Firebird 1.5 is not really compatible with Windows 7 / Windows 2008
Server, workaround is to install Firebird into a folder which is not under
UAC security (ie not in Program Files). Most likely it is trying to write
to the Program Files folder without sufficient rights. You might want to
check the 'Virtual Store'-folder in the user profile of the user that is
running the Firebird service
