Hi Experts,

I have a service on several machines and I cannot start em.

The service is not responding to the control function.

Can you explain when this error comes up ?
Because I have two test machines, a vm win7 x86 and a physical x64 win7, and here it works.
But I cannot find the difference.
The logon account is also the same.

I hope you have some ideas.

Have you checked that all the Dependencies are starting correctly? You will want to make sure they are running on the machines you can't start your services on.

Could you give us some more details to the Service you cannot start? Which service is it?

Can you explain what you mean by "control function"?

Does it give you a name of the Service that is not starting? There are literally 100's if not thousands of Services running at any given time, for various reasons.

Maybe kallmekid's link has answered that.

But why not just start the service(s)  manually from services.msc ?  It sounds like you do not have too many machines.

The service is for an application called ASEv2.
It is running on two other machines and its started.

But on all other machines in our domain, I cannot start the service.
When I want to start the service, this error pops up:

Error1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

And yes there are dependencies, but I am not familiar with it.

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!

You can see Dependencies on the Dependencies tab when you open the Services window.
 
Perhaps the following info will help you identify the source of the problem


COM + System Application (ComSysApp)
Manages the configuration and tracking of Component Object Model (COM)+-based components. If the service is stopped, most COM+-based components will not function properly. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start.

It has three Dependencies.
Com+ Event system
Remote Procedure Call
System Event Notification service  (SENS)


SENS
Monitors system events and notifies subscribers to COM+ Event System of these events.

Dependency
COM+ Event System

I cannot identify ASEv2.  Are you sure it is not SEv2 ?

Problem was the INI file which is related to the service.
Inside the INI file was a path and this path was not correct.
