Hi,

I don't have know what that message actually means.

Does NowSMS think the service is running?

Is the web interface accessible via a web browser?

I just want to make sure there is no confusion.

In the NowSMS configuration, when the service is active, the "Start" button is grayed out, and only the "Stop" button is available. That would be normal.

If the service is stopped, then the "Start" button would be available, and you would press the "Start" button to start it.

If the service won't start for some reason, then I can't think of any reason for this, unless the Windows service database is corrupt.

My advice would be to remove the service and re-add it, which you can do by UNchecking "Run As Service" ... and then REchecking it after it has been removed.

i myself am a developer and programmer so i very well know when a service is running and when it isnt, the event log entry was to just show that it failed from starting and the issue is nowsms doesnt create any debug log of service start or stop so i can submit anything to u

A debug log would be great, but you'll notice that in my reply, I didn't ask for one.

Did you try my advice above?

The only thing I can think of would be that if you installed NowSMS initially in one directory, then moved it to another directory, the services database could still have a reference to the old location.

That is why I am suggesting the above action.
