It would only work on a stand-alone installation, though. A remote client
can't query the Registry of a foreign host, can it?

Doesn't one of the service components return the server version string? I
can't test it at the moment due to all my Delphi's being in an ugly mess
because of testing installer kits.

Josef, could you install the IBOAdmin components and check for
yourself? The best candidate would be TIB_ConnectionInfo, which has these

property ODSMajorVersion: LongInt read GetODSMajorVersion;
property PageSize: LongInt read GetPageSize;
property Version: String read GetVersion;
