Oh dear, oh dear! Gbak is not a service application. Remove it! Gbak is a client application that accesses the specified database through the client library and runs in its own transaction.

gbak -z

You need the *correct* version for the version of the server you are running, which should be installed in the same \bin\ directory where the server executable is (fbserver.exe or fb_inet_server.exe).

There are two series of Firebird 2: 2.0.x and 2.1.x. Make certain which series you are on.
