Windows service won't start on a different machine


  • I created a windows service under Network service account that works fine on my local computer, dev environment. I want to test it on a different computer so i copied and installed the msi file from inside the setup project to a different machine. Checked Allow remote connections on my local MSSQLSERVER instance.

    When i try to start the service - it says the service on local computer started and then stopped. sdome services stop automatically is they are not in use by other services or programs.

    So i checked the eventviewer, it says - Service cannot be started.System.InvalidOperationException: Cannot open MSSQLSERVER service on computer <name>

    This is urgent, any help is appreciated.
