Q. The Windows Trace Session Manager service does not start and the System event log record Event ID 7000?

The Windows Trace Session Manager service did not start within the 30 seconds specified by the SCM (Service Control Manager), recording a System event log entry similar to:

Event Type: Error
Source : Service Control Manager
Event ID : 7000
Time: HH:MM:SS
User: N/A
Description: The Windows Trace Session Manager service failed to start due to the following error: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

You need to increase the default 30 seconds that the SCM uses, to 60 or more seconds, allowing time for the dependent services to start.

To set the ServicesPipeTimeout default to 60 seconds:

1. Open a CMD.EXE window.

2. Type the following command and press Enter::

SvcTimeOut.bat 60000
