Hello,

For some reason, I cannot get the Server Service on our F/P server to start.

Here is the following error: Windows could not start the Server Service on "X"
Error 2: The system cannnot find the file  Specified.

Server is Win2k8 64bit NON R2

Please help!

check the service settings, it points to a file that no longer exists on disk (has been moved/renamed)...
unless you can restore / rename the file(s), you will need to reinstall/repair the application / service ..

Thanks for the input,  I ended up having to build a new server from scratch.  Fortunately for us It's a Virtual Machine, and that we Cloned the new one in case any serious issues like this occur again.
