Error 1068: the dependency service or group failed to start. - Buisness Enviroment

    Question

  • Hello there,
    I am a Systems Engineer trying to find a fix for the 1068 error: the dependency service or group failed to start
    I have looked at all the forums and previous posts with people having similar issues but none of the fixes have worked.
    Resetting the TCP/IP stack has not fixed this issue & neither has system restore.
    My issue has happened on 3 machines and the only connection I can find is when you connect Windows 7 Professional to a Widows 2003 Domain.
    There seems to be little documentation on weather you need to upgrade the domain controllers from 2003 to 2008 before attempting to add Windows 7 into the domain.
    The corruption seems to start once the machine is on the domain and Windows attempts to install any program or run windows updates which is becoming very frustrating.
    I have created multiple hard drive clones so i can revert back to a working state to aid me when trying to work around this.
    With these Issues outstanding I can not think about upgrading the network from XP & 2003 until these issues are fixed.
    Can someone else let me know if they have had a similar problem when trying to upgrade there environment to Windows 7 and server 2008
    Regards

  • Hi Anton,

     

    Did Windows 7 joined the domain? Have you narrowed down which service failed with error 1068? The error code indicates one service's dependency service or system component fails to start.

     

    I suggest checking the following services first.

     

    Check service

    ----------------------

    1. Click Start, type Services.msc in Start Search bar, and then press Enter.

    2. In the right pane, double-click Microsoft Network Inspection.

    3. In the Startup type list, click Automatic, click Apply, click Start, and then click OK.

    4. Also check the following services.

     

    Function Discovery Resource Publication

    Desktop Window Manager Session Manager

    Network Connections

    Network List Service

    Network Location Awareness

    Network Store Interface Service

    Server

    TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper

     

    If you find any service cannot be started with the error, please let me know the service name and error exactly.

     

    In addition, since the issue is related to Server. I also suggest confirming the issue with Server side.

  • I am having the same issue but with a stand alone pc using Windows XP.  I cannot apply the same "Network Inspection" information to my case.  Any advice?

  • I also have the same problem with a standalone Dell Studio computer running Windows 7 (64 bits).  The Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) service is on Automatic, however it won’t start.  I know this because I am unable to use Windows Fax and Scan.  HP Scan Diagnostic Utility 4.2 reports the following problem for my new HP Deskjet 2050 J510 AIO (USB) printer.  “The Windows Imaging
    service is not running. Save you work, close all the applications, and then click Restart Computer. Run the HP Scan Diagnostic Utility again.  If the issue persists, you will not be able to scan using applications that use this service, such as Microsoft Paint.  HP scanning software applications might still work.”

    When I try to start the WIA service manually I get the error message:  “Windows could not start the Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) service on this local computer.  Error 1068.  The Dependency service or group failed to start.”

    Anybody knows how to get this service started?  Thank you.

  • Did you ever get a fix for this problem?

  • hold windows key & "r" to bring up the run prompt and type services.msc.  find "shell hardware detection" and it should be set to "automatic".  that worked for me.

  • Open "services.msc" and check which services the vCenter Server Service depends on and whether these services are started. If not, check the Windows Event logs to see if there are service start errors.

  • Thank you sir, this actually helped me, and it might help others that was having issues with  getting firewall to work with error 1068 :the dependancy service or group failed to start.

    Once in services.msc from the run window > find windows firewall > right click and go to properties > go to Dependancies tab... look at the field that says "This service depends on the following  system components" > compare all those in that field to make sure they are Started and Automatic.

    This worked for me

  • Finally. Someone with the right answer.

    Like the error says, the dependant services are not running.

    Find the service you can't start in services.msc, right click and open properties. Go to dependency and make sure all those are started. 99% of the time one of those services hasn't started.

  • I had the same problem with my windows vista computer and it would also not let me connect to the internet.  I just had to manually setup the ip info to get internet and the other issues are still there and I can't get them fixed at all.  Happened after a windows update a while ago

  • Enable the Net.TCP Port Sharing Service using MMC

    1. From the Start menu, open the Services Management Console either by opening a Command Prompt window and typing services.msc or by opening Run and typing services.msc into the Open box.

    2. In the Name column of the list of services, right-click the Net.Tcp Port Sharing Service, and select Properties from the menu.

    3. To enable the manual start-up of the service, in the Properties window select the General tab, and in the Startup type box select Manual, and then click Apply.

    4. To start the service,  in the Service status area, click the Start button. The service status should now display "Started".

    5. To return to the list of services, click the OK, and exit the MMC Console.
