Why are you even trying to install version 2.5.2? It is not the latest
2.5.x version, it is a 4+ year old version with a known(!) security
vulnerabilities that have been fixed in later versions. That is probably
why Windows doesn't allow it to be installed.

Install Firebird 2.5.7, which will install just fine on Windows 2012R2
(I even spun up a VM to test it).
