You need to reference the FirebirdSql.Data.Client library (Firebird
ADO.net provider, https://firebirdsql.org/en/net-provider/), which will
load fbclient if you set it to server type embedded. But really, you
should take your question to the Firebird-net-provider Google Group,
because you're more likely to get a more specific answer there about
using Firebird from .net.
