Firstly are all Sharepoint services running ?
http://autospinstaller.codeplex.com/discussions/402412

Did you try to restart the server and check ?
What all other 3rd party softwares do you have on the server and hope all services for them are running ?
Did you check event viewer for any Error events that can help trace the issue.

Thanks Rancy,
The error actually appears on a server restart.
All SP services are running correctly.
Only 3rd party software installed is F-Secure.
I have no error before that or after that assists.
Been trawling the net for 2 weeks, no solution as yet!

What if you disable F-Secure and try with normal SP only ? I mean after disabling you will have to restart the server though

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I have the same issue on a clean install. In the past with vss errors on server 2008 r2 it usually gives you the username affected in the event as well as the error info. Then you give that account access to the registry keys but I havent found the username affected in 2012 but would summise its going to be one of the sharepoint service accounts

Thanks Porka,

I actually ignored the error after hours of research.
I will look into it again and try to figure out what SharePoint Account may be causing the issue.

I was able to resolve the issue based on my post above, it wasn't my farm install account but the main managed service account and the registry path was HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VSS\Diag. Hope this helps

Added both the Farm Search Account and Managed Services Account then the error was gone. Thanks
