I will check what Dmitry has suggested.

Btw, the fb server is installed in the "\program files (x86)" folder and run as a service and it's a local machine, not a server, so the application is also run on this machine.

Well, I don't have Windows 8 running, but it sounds a bit like a permission issue, e.g. having Firebird installed in the program files folder and running Firebird under a user with restricted privileges ...

Is Firebird running as a Windows service or as an application?

Other than that, what Dmitry has suggested.
