NiceLabel Automation service doesn't start

Official translation unavailable. Translate this page with Google:


You have successfully installed NiceLabel Automation on your computer, but the services NiceLabel Automation Service and NiceLabel Automation Proxy Service failed to start.

If you manually try to start the service in the Services console, you might receive the error message:

Windows could not start the NiceLabel Automation Service service on Local Computer.
Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start.


Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion


The problem is related to the user permissions of the user account you selected for NiceLabel Automation service. Every Windows service runs under a specific user account.

If you selected Local System account (or some account with limited user rights) during the installation, this account is not granted with permission to log on as NiceLabel Automation Service and it fails to start. The service will log the problem in the Event Viewer, where you will see all details about the problem and possible solution.

The NiceLabelAutomationProxyService service was unable to log on as DOMAIN\user with the currently configured password due to the following error: 
Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer.
This service account does not have the required user right "Log on as a service."

First, try to change NiceLabel Automation Service user. Go to Services > NiceLabel Automation Service 10 > Log On tab. Select a user with administrative privileges in This account section.


If there are no users with rights to run NiceLabel Automation Service, add the rights to the user you want to run Automation.
