I’m running Duplicati on Windows 10 as a service. On one system with an SSD, everything is fine. On the other system with a spinning disk, and thus a much slower boot time, the windows service frequently doesn’t start on boot. When manually starting the service I would sometimes get a 1053 error. I found this page, Error 1053: "The service did not respond in a timely fashion" when attempting to start, stop or pause a service : Support, about increasing the amount of time that the windows service control will wait before deciding the service didn’t start. That seemed to help as Duplicati started on the next boot. However this morning when the system booted the Duplicati service was found to not be running. Looking through Event Viewer I found the error “Service cannot be started. The service process could not connect to the service controller”. The source of the event is listed as Duplicati.
Is this still that the service is taking a long time to start or a different error?
