Article #25337: When installing BDE based products they overwrite IB v5 gds32.dll with v4.2.1 dl

Problem:
If you have installed and are running InterBase version 5.0 on Windows NT/95 and
then install a BDE based product  will over write the IB v5 gds32.dll with the IB 
v4.2.1 gds32.dll.

Solution:
Until the BDE changes their installation programs to locate our software in its new
 registry location this will continue to happen.

Default Registry Entries:

v4.21:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
  SOFTWARE
    Borland
      InterBase

v5.00:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
  SOFTWARE
    InterBase Corp
      InterBase

To avoid this problem you must:

a) Safely shut down the InterBase server.
b) Rename the gds32.dll to gds32.500 (or something you like)
c) Install the BDE based product
d) Rename the gds32.dll to gds32.421 (or something you like)
e) Rename gds32.500 to gds32.dll
f) Restart the InterBase server.
