Environment: Windows 8.1 with Firebird Server 2.5.2 installed

 Description  « Hide
When installing fdb 1.4 using either ' install' or 'easy_install fdb' it does not find the fbclient.dll if it is not on a path. The error shown does not clearly identify what is causing the error.

ctypes.find_library fails to find it as the path is not including the FB server install and there is also this issue

Attached a suggested patch to use the registry to find the FB server install path.

Tested only with Python 2.7.6 32 bit on Windows 8.1 with an FB server 2.5.2 32bit install
