The error when I tried to start the Windows Internal Database service was: Windows could not start the Windows Internal Database service on local computer… Log on failed Usually when you can’t start a service because of a log on failure, it means that the user account used to start the service either doesn’t have permission or the password is wrong. To fix this, I gave the user account (or more specifically NT SERVICE\ALL SERVICES) the Log on as Service privilege in the local policy. Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
