Hello,
I have a program running that automatically syncs some of my data online. It is running on a computer with Windows 7 Pro as well as a Windows Server 2003 that I use as for file storage. Unfortunately it does not startup until I log into a profile, but since I don't really use these computers, sometimes this doesn't happen for days on end. I decided to create it as a service (used the sc.exe utility - sc create DataBackup binPath= "C:\Program Files\Data Deposit Box\backup.exe" DisplayName= "Kineticd Backup" start=auto). The service was created successfully, but when I try to start the service, I get the following error.

Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion

Would anybody have any idea why this is happening?
Thanks

dumb question maybe, but did you verify that backup.exe is located in c:\program files\data deposit box\backup.exe

Yes, I am sure it is there. I had the folder open as I was creating it, and double-checked to make sure that I had typed the path correctly.
