Service will not start:  error 1067: the process terminated unexpectedly

Good Morning,

We have a custom service that we install with our application.  The only problem is that after it is installed, it will not start, generating the error above.  I have tried to diagnose what the problem is, but can't seem to find any useful information as to why it is quitting.  I have tried the same service on a non "R2" 2008 server, and it worked fine.

The service works in conjunction with our web application; it updates the application's database to reschedule activities.  As I am not a programmer, I can't express what exactly it is doing.

Has anyone had any experience troubleshooting this type of problem, where there are so few clues?
