I think that would depend on the service.  
Is the Service normally in the Stopped status just after boot?
What problem is caused when the service starts without the certain program?

No the service starts regardless and I need to make a dependency. The problem is the dependent program is not running as a service...

You could run the dependent executable as a service.

sc create newservice binpath= "<path_to_the_executable>"

The reference from serialband may not be applicable to Win 7, although I have not tried it.
This reference from Oracle seems applicable to apps other than Oracle's.

It's applicable.
And with
sc config newservice depend
you could afterwards define dependencies and that's all.

Yes, Windows 7 and even Windows 8 uses sc.  It's not exclusive to the servers.
