We use both gfix and gbak from windows service to perform routine maintenance operations such as moving db to shutdown mode performing check and then backup then online mode. This works fine on Firebird 2.5.2 however it does not work on 2.5.3 & 2.5.4. The gfix or gbak just start running then hangs for hours doing nothing till I terminate the process. The problem seems to exists on windows 7 & 8.1 don't know about other OS's. I tried running the service using user account instead of the system account but it did not help. Does anyone has a suggestion or work around ?

This is a known bug with Services API in 2.5.3 and 2.5.4. We had the same problem with our HQbird FBDataGuard, and with our report it was fixed in 2.5.5.
