If Interbase and Firebird are both installed on the same machine, make
sure that Firebird is not using TCP/IP port 3050. Since Interbase will
already be using it.

And, if the applications, Interbase and Firebird are all running on
the same machine, make sure that you are connecting using TCP/IP and
not the local connection (TIB_Connection.Protocol:=cpLocal). Because
this might cause a conflict between Interbase and Firebird.

I would simply make sure that no client library is installed in
Windows' System32 folder. This will force the usage of the library
that is installed in the application's folder.
