FIX: You receive an "Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion" error message when you stop or pause a managed Windows service
Article ID: 839174 - View products that this article applies to.
When you stop or pause a managed Microsoft Windows service, and the process of stopping or pausing the service takes more time than the default configured time, you receive the following error message:
Note Windows service name is a placeholder for the name of the Windows service that you have created.
Could not stop the Windows service name service on Local Computer.
Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
The ServiceBase class calls the OnStop method directly from the Service command handler that is defined in the ScDispatcherLoop of the Advapi32.dll file. After 30 seconds, if the ScDispatcherLoop thread is not ready to receive a new service command from the service control manager, Windows Service Controller marks the service as "time out." Therefore, you receive this error message.
