The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

If your Windows Service does not start and there is the following error under System folder in the Event Viewer:


The ServiceName service failed to start due to the following error:
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

It might occur if the .NET Framework, the service uses, is not installed on the machine.

Run your service in command line mode (if it's supported) and you'll see the error saying .NET Framework X.X is not installed.

Then you will know what version you need to download and install

Hope it saved you time, that I spent on finding this out
