Service won't start, immediate error 1053 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've written a service that's giving me trouble on one particular PC.  It runs fine everywhere else, but on this one PC StartServiceCtrlDispatcher fails.  GetLastError returns 1053: "The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion".  It doesn't do so after the 30 second timeout, though; it returns immediately.

    Any ideas what might cause an immediate 1053?
