Interbase XE7 Deployment with the application

Dear Team,

I have developed a Windows Desktop application using Delphi 10 Seattle and Interbase XE7 Desktop Edition (both licensed version). I will be packaging all my executables using Microsoft Virtualization sequencer into one single Appv file which can be used for deployment to hundreds of users of the application. The Interbase database is used locally by the application and hence once deployed, each user will be working on his own Interbase database copy file (.GDB / IB file).
To meet this requirement I want to know which Interbase version(IBLite, Interbase ToGo, Interbase Desktop, Interbase XE7 ToGo Test Deployment) should be used , that can be added in my application package and deployed across all users with application package.

The InterBase ToGo database engine can be embedded in applications by directly using the InterBase database engine library. It does not have to be installed on any server or end-user workstation and it does not require that InterBase be installed on a machine before use like InterBase Server and Desktop.

ToGo has no separate database server process running, and the database engine executes in the application process space. The embedded InterBase engine runs faster with these types of database applications because network connections are not used and data is not passed between the application and a separate database server. This gives application developers more choice and flexibility in their database design and deployment. Some applications for the embedded service include small devices and public kiosks, and the lowest end version of Value Added Resellers (VAR) applications which are built using InterBase
