Error 193: 0xc1 when starting a service

Out of the blue I was getting the following error:

Windows could not start the ServiceName service on Local Computer.

 Error 193: 0xc1

Check the Path where the service has been installed: example: C:Program FilesApplication NameServiceName.exe

This error has something to do with a file in the root of one the folders with a ‘ ‘ (space) in it. So:

  • C:Program
  • C:Program FilesApplication

Remove the file and voila…
