Windows Service Stopped


Recommended Posts


The Passwordstate Windows Service executes back ground tasks such as password resets, heartbeats, reports and email notifications.  If you notice that the Passwordstate Windows service is in a stopped state, this could be due to your AV solution quarantining the executable for the Windows Service.



In build 9708, we moved the passwordstate.exe file to a new location, in a dedicated folder.  Moving this file has resulted in some AV solutions to quarantine the file.



Step 1: Check if the c:\inetpub\passwordstate\windowsservice\passwordstate.exe file exists.  If it doesn't proceed to step 2. If it exists, but the service will still not start, please log a support call with Click Studios as this will be a different issue.

Step 2: On your Passwordstate webserver, download the zip file from here and extract it: https://www.clickstudios.com.au/downloads/temp/PasswordstateWindowsService_Build9753.zip

Step 3: Place it in the c:\inetpub\passwordstate\WindowsService folder

Step 4: Run the upgrade again straight away by following section 3 in this guide: https://www.clickstudios.com.au/downloads/version9/Upgrade_Instructions.pdf
