The official kits for Windows are distributed as executable installers. It is strongly recommended that you use the installer in preference to any .zip or .rar version that might appear.

The Firebird 1.5 install kits include executables and associated files for both server models: Superserver and Classic. Dialog boxes in the installer will prompt you for the model you want to install, and the other one will not be copied to your disk. For Firebird 1.0.x, the only model supported is Superserver.
Release names of the installers are as follows:
If a Windows kit appears as a .zip file, you will require a utility, such as WinZip, PKZip, or WinRAR, to inspect and/or extract the contents before you begin. These kits (not intended for beginners) are as follows:
On service-capable platforms —Windows NT, 2000, and XP—the Firebird server is installed, by default, to run as a service. The service will be installed and started automatically at the end of the installation process and, subsequently, each time you boot up your server machine. To find out how to stop and start the server manually
Low-end Windows platforms—Windows 95, 98, and ME—do not support services. The installation will start Firebird server as an application, protected by the Guardian program. If the server application should terminate abnormally for some reason, the Guardian will attempt to restart it. For a server that is going to run as a service, it is recommended that you accept the Guardian option.
Do not try to install a Classic server if you already have a Superserver installed, or vice versa.
