I can't confirm your reported behaviour, but I can confirm with
CreateInternalWindow = 0 that I can't start the guardian or the
server (without the guardian) when running as service, even when
the "Interact with desktop... " option (that's translated from
my German installation) is *unchecked*.

Does somebody know if this is "as designed" that the guardian/server
can't be run as a service with CreateInternalWindow = 0? I haven't
found anything in the Release Notes about that.

Windows 2000 Prof. German SP3, Firebird 1.5 RC 7 SuperServer.
