    Hi @spenw

    Error 1053 usually means that a Windows service fails to start within a specified amount of time. Here are some steps you can try to fix this error:

    1. Open the Services console. It can be opened by pressing the "Windows key + R" key combination, typing "services.msc" and pressing the "Enter" key.
    2. Find the service where the error occurred, right-click on it and select Properties.
    3. In the Properties window, click the Login tab.
    4. Make sure the "This Account" option is selected and enter the username and password for the account with administrator privileges.
    5. Click the Apply button, and then click the OK button.
    6. Restart your computer and check if the service has started successfully.

    If the above steps can't resolve the issue, try the following steps:

    1. Open the Services console.
    2. Find the service where the error occurred, right-click on it and select Properties.
    3. In the Properties window, click the Dependencies tab.
    4. Make sure that all dependent services are started.
    5. Restart your computer and check if the service has started successfully.

    If the problem still persists, try uninstalling and reinstalling the service.

    Hope it helps.

    Kind regards,

    Lei
