Just restart the firebird server.

Running as a service:
Currently (no updated CPL for 1.5)
at command line:
net stop FirebirdServer

and, to restart
net start FirebirdServer

Or you can go to your Firebird root\bin directory and do

instsvc -stop

followed by

instsvc -start

Running as an application - whatever it takes to stop and start an
application in XP, e.g. use Task Manager to stop it and then double-click
on a shortcut or the exe file entry in Explorer to start up again.

The full release should have an updated service manager CPL.
