If your own service correctly depends on Firebird engine service, then
the most important thing is done. I would suggest to just add a Wait
(30 sec) in the startup of your own service application. That should
leave plently of time for the firebird engine to be ready. Honestly,
seeing the time to boot Windows, a 30 sec pause before your
application service actually starts is probably nothing important.
