Erm...this is NOT a Delphi support list! But here's a hint: embedded is a deployment option for single-user single-machine use. For development you'll need to use the full server. Reason: two different user-spaces can't connect simultaneously to the same database. Meaning: if the IDE (one user space) has components connected to the database via an embedded server then your exe (in its own user space) can't connect to it via another embedded server. So in this case, "not loadable" is the problem, or at least one of the problems.

"protocol = 'firebird-2-5' " is probably another. With Delphi database connection components, the protocol property is usually some symbol indicating the connection protocol - TCP/IP, WNET a.k.a. netbeui or local. For example, in an IBObjects TIB_Connection, the protocol property set is [cpLocal, cpNetBEUI, cpTCP_IP].

I suggest you hunt out a Delphi or Lazarus support list where third-party components are on the menu....or maybe read the Zeoslib component help?
