Service stuck on starting state.

Hi there,

I have a problem getting a service written in VB.NET to start on my machine. I have stripped back all the code so I just have a timer and I write to a log when the timer expires. When I start the service, it remains in the starting state and does not change to running. This is only a problem on my dev machine. The service is running though as entries are being written to the log every 30 seconds. When I start the service, I get a 1053 Error.

Both machines are running Win2K Pro.

I don't think this is a code issue but I would appreciate any help I can get.

Many thanks

You shoud be runing service under account that has administrator privileges.

Thanks for your comment Ivan. I am signed in as an administrator when i start the service and I am able to start and stop other services on the system. I also have the service running under the "LocalSystem" account.

The 1053 says that the OS didn't get proper status within the time it expected.

In .NET services, the RUNNING state is signaled when control gets to the OnStart() code after exiting from the service Main() and going through ServicName() [which calls InitializeComponent()].

Not seeing your code, I'd guess you're not getting to OnStart() quickly enough.
