2.2. Database access
Client access can be only via the local protocol,
i.e. NOT a TCP/IP connection string that includes
the server name "localhost" or IP address 127.0.0.1.
The embedded server supports only the local connection
to a database file path without a server name.
The database file can be accessed by multiple client
programs. The database consistency in this case is
guaranteed internally (by the shared lock table).

The absolute minimum you need is the fbclient.dll (same 32/64-bitness
as your application). I put it in the same folder as my application's
.exe file so it can be found easily.
My customers can start the application from a share's UNC path without
installing anything (DB driver, Aliases etc.) on the local client
machine. All they need is the link to that UNC path.
