Event 7036 - Application Experience service


  • Hi all,

    I see lots of 7036 events from starting and stopping the "Application Experience Service" flooding the system log of a Server 2008 R2 with IIS installed.

    7036  None  The Application Experience service entered the running state

    7036  None  The Application Experience service entered the stopped state.

    Time between stop and start of the service is sometimes below one minute.

    Is there any chance to find out which application is triggering the "Application Experience Service"?

  • Some services are routinely started and stopped by other dependant processes so these informational messages all look to be normal.

    Application Experience

    The Application Experience service (AELookupSvc) is a part of the Application Compatibility Administrator. It processes application compatibility lookup requests for applications as they are started, provides support for Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista–based computers running programs in compatibility mode, reports on compatibility issues, and automatically applies software updates to programs.

    The Application Experience service must be active for application compatibility software updates to be applied. You cannot customize this service; the operating system uses it internally. This service does not use any network, Internet, or Active Directory® Domain Services (AD DS) resources.

    If you disable the Application Experience service, the service continues to run, but no calls are made to the service. You cannot stop the actual process.
