Solved the issue "unable to load DLL fbembed.dll"

If you install Firebird server and open a database by Firebird server, download Fb embed package having the same release number as Firebird server. If you don't install a new Firebird server you don't have to download a new Fb embedded release for that database. Anyway in application directory you have to copy:
- fbembed.dll
- icuu30.dll
- icuin30.dll
- icudt30.dll
Also you have to copy the folders "intl" and "udf".

  6. If the above solution didnt work out for you. Download the Firebird-2.0.1.12855-1_embed_win32.zip then extract it. Inside the folder, copy the msvcp71.dll and msvcr71.dll to your application directory. Run your program and check if it works. Cheers. :p

    Regards,

  8. Doesn't work.
    I got that problem..
    I downloaded 'Firebird-2.0.5.13206-1_embed_pdb.zip' that is the current available version.

    I copyed it on EVERY folder (bin, debug, release..etc)

    it keeps saying the same.
    Maybe its because web environment? (testing it on localhost, but on a webpage) I cant make it work on webpages.


    could you help with this?
