14 Nov 09 Increase the service timeout period

Event ID 7011 – Timeout (30000 milliseconds)

The Service Control Manager will generate an event if a service does not respond within the defined timeout period (the default timeout period is 30000 milliseconds). To resolve this problem, use the Registry Editor to change the default timeout value for all services.

  • In the Registry Editor, click the registry subkey HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control
  • In the details pane, locate the ServicesPipeTimeout entry, right-click that entry and then select Modify.Note: If the ServicesPipeTimeout entry does not exist, you must create it by selecting New on the Edit menu, followed by the DWORD Value, then typing ServicesPipeTimeout, and clicking Enter.
  • Click Decimal, enter the new timeout value in milliseconds (i prefer 120000), and then click OK.
  • Restart the computer.
