Good morning,

I provide a application with fbclient.dll file in the root folder of the executable. I noticed on a system, that the created firebird.log file was placed on the folder level above of the executeable.

The question that comes to my mind is, what could have an influance for the path selection of the log file placement.
Usualy i found the log in the same folder as the executable.

Thanks in advance!

Upgrade your fbclient.dll to Firebird 3, and it should log in the same
directory. The reason it stores the log file one directory higher
derives from how the file layout is in Firebird 2.5 and earlier (it has
a \bin directory for executables and DLLs).

The only other option I'm aware of, is building a custom version of
