    Check if Firebird is running as a service


    All,

    I am writing an install program in Windows that needs to check

    a) Is Firebird installed?
    b) If yes, is it running right now?

    Thanks in advance,
    Andy

    Thanks for you replies.

    I guess i had not put my question correctly.

    Is there a way to check whether the Firebird service is running on a Windows machine? I would like to know if a machine has Firebird already installed so that I do not install it again.

    Thanks in advance
