Resolve

Remove the dependent service

This issue occurs because a service has a dependency on a nonexistent service to start. To resolve this issue, remove the dependency on the nonexistent service for the service indicated in the event message text.

To perform this procedure, you must have membership in Administrators, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

To list the dependent services for a service and remove the dependencies:

  1. At a command prompt, type sc qc service_name to view the other services on which service_name is dependent.
  2. Type sc query type= all to list all valid services and device services. Compare the results of this command to the list of dependent services provided in step #1 and identify the nonexistent dependent services.
  3. Type sc config service_name depend= dependencies, where dependencies are just the names of the valid dependent services, separated by forward slashes (/), to remove dependencies on the nonexistent dependent services.

    Note: If the service has no valid dependent services, enter a null value for the depend parameter.

For more information about the sc command, see SC Command Reference Help (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=84961).

Verify

To perform this procedure, you must have membership in Administrators, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

To verify that a service has started:

  1. Open the Services snap-in by clicking the Start button, Control Panel,  and Administrative Tools, then double-clicking Services.

    Note: For Windows Vista, use the Classic View display option in Control Panel to see the Administration Tools.

  2. In the details pane of the Services snap-in, locate the name of the service and verify that the Status column shows a status of Started.
