Can't activate windows event id 7000 service did not respond to the start or control request

    Question

  • Hi, We have a server running server 2012 datacenter that will not activate windows. Everytime we run windows activation we get error code 0x8007041D "The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion". Also in the event viewer there are several errors with event id 7000

    "The Software Protection service failed to start due to the following error:
    The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion."

    Does anyone know of a resolution to this issue?
