 Description  « Hide
Running instclient r f to remove fbclient.dll from %WINDIR%\System32 (or SysWOW64) doesn't remove fbclient.dll if it has a shared DLL count larger than 1, but it reports it has removed it with the message "The FBCLIENT.DLL has been removed from the System directory."

Steps to reproduce:
> instclient q f

If this reports "Installed FBCLIENT.DLL version : 3.0.0.xxxx (shared DLL count n)" (where n > 1) you're set, otherwise:

Run at least twice using different Firebird 3 versions:
> instclient i f

Now instclient q f should report shared DLL count 2 or higher.

> instclient r f

Output is "The FBCLIENT.DLL has been removed from the System directory."
However 1) it is still present in %WINDIR%\System32 and 2) instclient q f now reports a shared DLL count 1 lower than previous.

To me the expected behavior would be to report that the file has not been removed because the shared DLL count was larger than 1 and that the shared DLL count has been decremented by 1.

Note that instclient r -f f does remove fbclient.dll if the shared DLL count is larger than 1.
