- don't register Fb2 as a service - run it as an application.
- change the RemoteServicePort in Fb2's config file, and set
CreateInternalWindow to 0 in both config files (Fb1.5 and Fb2). AFAIU
Fb2 is not supposed to use this last one, but just in case...
- run Fb2 manually using this command file:

set FIREBIRD=<path>
<path>\bin\fbserver.exe -a

where <path> is the path in which you have installed Fb2.
You could run it on startup/login if you wish.
