Hello Everyone,

While troubleshooting another problem, they never seem to end. :thumbsup: I noticed that the 'DCOM Server Process Launcher' service is in a 'Starting' mode or state, not 'Started' but 'Starting, meaning it never really gets started.

The service 'Startup Type' is set to 'Automatic'

When I try to manually start the service I get the message:

Could not start the DCOM Server Process Launcher service on Local Computer.
Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.


I have set this service to 'Disabled', rebooted, reset service to 'Automatic', as well as 'Manual', and tried to start the service, I get the same error.

What I would like to know is,

1. How important is this service, do I NEED it running?

2. If so, how do I make it start?

I am going to continue searching the web, but if anyone knows, please fire away.

Also, do you thin this could have any problem with my other post "Problems while installing software (XP)"? (This forum)

Thanks in advance,

Jim

I am going to guess you want this started. You may want to run the system file checker to make sure no files were corrupted

Nope, click on start, then run, and type:

sfc /scannow

Make sure you have windows xp cd handy as you may need it
