I haven't tried it, but it should run. Although, if you want to convert
your client programs to 64bits you will need to use a 2.5 64bit

The 2.5 fbclient.dll is a bit more than an upgrade and should be able to
connect to ancient Fb 1.0 installations

Well, a real confirmation will need a test with your client programs and
your servers. I haven't seen a 1.0 installation for about ten years.
