    Hi Anu,

    exactly as Kevin suggests, this needs to be entered also in your case:

    Full path to the file: %windir%\system32\net.exe
    Parameters: start WinRM

    This will do the job :)

    (If the reply was helpful please don't forget to upvote and/or accept as answer, thank you)

    If you look closely the path is to net.exe (not the service exe). Effectively this runs "net start service". Was that the issue?

    Though the OS MP should be monitoring for WinRM. This sort of automated response is usually only needed for 3rd party services. The core OS services are pretty good at managing themselves.
