Applies to

 StifleR Server 1.4

 Symptoms

 Installation of the StifleR Server times out and eventually fails with a message dialogue:-

 Service ‘2Pint Software StifleR Server@ (StifleR Server) failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services. 

The .MSI and StifleR Debug Log (If enabled during setup) give no indication of the root cause. 

Cause

This error may appear under several different circumstances, several of which are not actually caused by installer account privilege.

In this case the issue is around an expired License.cab file.

Solution

Check that the License.cab file entered during setup is not a time limited evaluation version or an incorrect .cab file.
