  • Hello friends :

    I have a problem with starting my windows time service an i get this error every time i try to start the service :
    "

    Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion


    1-I restarted the server
    2-I changed the Parameters in the registry to NT5DS and the NTP server to " My domain.local "
    3-I want to use an internal Time server
    4-I configured the domain group policy settings to enable NTP and configured them to use my domain.local as their  NTP server

    The service is a web service? If starting the service from cmd go?

  • I Got the same problem while starting the service. But my problem is due to the code in Main() method.

    static void Main()

    {

    #if

    (!DEBUG)

    ServiceBase[] ServicesToRun;

    ServicesToRun = new ServiceBase[]

    {

    new MyTestService()

    };

    ServiceBase.Run(ServicesToRun);

    #else

     

    MyTestService service = new MyTestService();

    service.Test();

    #endif

    }



    I used this code to debug the service. By this code i am able to debug but after the service is installed its not able to start.
    I changed this code as given below and every thing is working fine.

     

    static void Main()

    {

     

    ServiceBase[] ServicesToRun;

    ServicesToRun =

    new ServiceBase[]

    {

     

    new MyTestService()

    };

     

    ServiceBase.Run(ServicesToRun);

    }

  • Yes, thank you. It worked for me.

  • I had this problem and the solution was extremely simple.

    First I tried the various accounts to run the service under, none worked, even a local administrator - all timed out.

    Then I realised the service connected to a SQL Server database that I hadn't finished setting up yet. I finished building the database and the service starts fine.

    What a shame the error (even in the event log) didn't provide any meaningful help!

  • I had the same problem with starting windows search service. I fixed it after reinstalling micro$oft .net framework like they recommended

  • Equallogic HIT Kit:

    Start Setup64.exe, not the .msi

    This will install .net 4 profile... with all required dlls

  • Go to windows search, type sql configuration manager, then start services for SQL services, then restart the services of Instance, problem solved :)

  • Hi,

    for me it was a process hogging all the cpu power (mcafee, once on access scan was disabled cpu went back to normal)

    As soon as this was disabled the services started and stopped immediately.
