  • Hi,


    Do you have Microsoft SQL Server installed? The Data Online Transaction Processing Module service should be a component of Microsoft SQL Server. Event ID: 7000 means that Service Control Manager (SCM) could not start the service, probably because the service is not configured correctly.


    To troubleshoot this issue, I would like to suggest you repair the Data Online Transaction Processing Module service. For further assistance regarding how to repair this service, please submit a new question to SQL Server forum which is the best resource for this issue. Here is the link for SQL Server forum:
