You can use Service Dependencies for this. In you call to CreateService()
for the service, specify a value for the "lpDependencies" parameter. This
parameter holds a pointer to a double null-terminated array of
null-separated names of services that this service depends on. The Service
Control Manager will make sure these services start first, so the
dependencies are satisfied.
So just add the ipc-daemon service there, and the rest should happen
automatically.
