  • Hi,

    As I know, error messages should be logged in the Windows event log rather than raised in the user interface. Since you are unable to run IE 11 from a Window Service, you may check the related event logs in Event Viewer.

    I also would like to suggest you check if the .net framwork 4.5 is enabled.

    Hope it helps.
