- Plesk for Windows
When trying to start a service using the Services Management Console (services.msc), the following error message is displayed:
PLESK_INFO: Error 193: 0xc1 Service fails to start
PLESK_INFO: Windows could not start the <Service Name> service on Local Computer
Error 193: 0xc1
In some cases, Plesk Backup Manager is not accessible:
PLESK_INFO: Cannot create process: C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Parallels\\Plesk\\python\\python.exe "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Parallels\\Plesk\\admin\\bin\\PMMcli-runner.py" --get-tasks-list
at (wmain line 63)
at Unable to execute Python script(wmain line 86)
Execute file name: C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Parallels\\Plesk\\admin\\bin\\PMMcli.exe
A file with the name "Program" exists in the System drive (C:) or the drive, where Plesk is installed.
When the Microsoft Service Control Manager launches a service, it checks the path to the executable. If there are any files with the same name in the directory as the the first word in the directory name, it will fail with the above error.
Connect to the Plesk server via RDP.
Make sure that there is no file with the name "Program" in the root of the System drive (C:) or drive, where Plesk is installed. If such file exists, rename it, for example, to Old-Program.
