PSIcapture Capture Services won't start automatically


Capture Services does not start automatically with windows (upon reboot / shutdown). 

No application errors in Windows Event log. No Capture.Services.log entries for Windows start times.

Starting Capture Services manually works as normal.




Open Registry Editor.

Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control

With the control folder selected, right click in the pane on the right and select new DWORD Value

Name the new DWORD: ServicesPipeTimeout

Right-click ServicesPipeTimeout, and then click Modify

Click Decimal, type 180000, and then click OK

Restart the computer


Note: By editing or creating the ServicesPipeTimeout DWORD value, the Service Control Manager timeout period can be overridden, thereby giving the service more time to start up and report ready to the Service.
