“The [Service name] Service on Local Computer Started and Then Stopped. Some Services Stop Automatically If They Are Not in Use By Other Services or Programs” – Windows Error Message

Summary

This Error Message Article explains the Windows error message “The [Service name] Service on Local Computer Started and Then Stopped. Some Services Stop Automatically If They Are Not in Use By Other Services or Programs” and details how to fix the underlying problem that caused it to appear.

Explanation

There are many reasons why a service would stop.  It is best to inspect the Event Viewer to determine the cause of the stoppage.  Possible reasons include:

  • Error within the application
  • License activation issue
