Help with Windows Service - Windows could not start the service on a local computer;

I have a windows service app I created using Visual Studio.   I have it running successfully on one server.  On a second server, I can install it, but when I start it I get:  

Windows could not start the service on a local computer. Error 1067: The Process terminated unexpectedly.

I added some debug code, and it's never getting to my app; it's never starting.   Anyone ever see this?  Any thoughts?  Any thoughts as to differences on the servers that might cause this issue?  Both servers are 2008.

Does the second server have the correct version of .NET installed?

Any other dependencies? 3rd party DLLs etc? Service failing to start is usually a sign of dependency issues.

This ended up being a Microsoft bug unrelated to the fact I was running a service.
