Can Not install a program that starts a service
Posted on 2004-10-25
I am trying to install a program, Connect:Direct 4.1 on a Win 2000 server SP4, and everything is going well untill it it says "Starting services" and then it just hangs. By hangs I mean the program hangs without advancing; the entire system is fine. After it times out it asks me to "Retry" or "Cancel" and the following error message comes us:
"Error 1920. Service Connect Direct v4.1.00 (Connect Direct v4.1.00) failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services."
Of course I tried "Retry", yet to no avail. When I cancel, it uninstalls everything up that point. I am logged in as Administrator so I don't see how I can not have sufficient privileges. I even tried to create another user and make it part of the Admins group and still did not work. Would you have any suggestions as to what else I can try? Thank you so much for your time.
