Subject IBO and Firebird 1.5 GOOD PRACTICE Was: [IBO] IBO and fbembeded.dll HOWTO
Author Artur Anjos
Frank and Tony:

Just to change the topic.

Main reason:

1) This will be a rule for people that want to use fbclient.dll directly -
without the need to install gds32.dll (that is a redirector in 1.5) - and
without the need to change anything in IBO sources.

With the change suggested, people can really have IBO talking with Firebird
1 / Interbase (whatever version) / Firebird 1.5 using the own client of the
version they want to use.

( Good tips! )
