I am trying to start the sql server aganet from services and its giving me an "1068 - the dependency service or group failed to start"
I have read numerous posts on this error and everyone suggests that chaing the logon to local system account will solve the purpose. I have tried that many times buts its working.
When i click the start button from sql server agant interface, it gives me an error "%1 is not a valid win32 application "
Any takers of this problem ??
One more thing .. when i run the mssqlserver service i get -error 193 -ocx1
These both appear to be OS errors, as the corresponding errors in SQL Server have messages that don't seem to apply. I will assume that when you get the error 193 from the mssqlserver service, it fails to execute. If this is true, that is probably why SQL agent won't run. It is dependent on mssqlserver, and cannot run if mssqlserver is not running. Is this a new installation? If so, I'd suggest that you simply reinstall. If not, you may want to research the error 193. Find out what's causing that and fix it, and your agent should start working. Because these seem to be Operating System errors, you may have better luck researching at a Windows site/forum.
Thank you all. I reserached the error 193 and found the root cause of the problem.
There was a file named "program" on my system drive which created the problem.
Renaming it solved all the problem
I am facing this similar problem.
Could you please let me know how to resolve this?
