eConnect is both a very useful tool for integrating data into Microsoft Dynamics GP, and also hugely frustrating. I assisted a client in creating a new test system recently and had some problems with eConnect. I installed it as normal, but the service didn't start; when I tried to start the service manually, it started and immediately stopped without showing an error message.
I checked in the Windows Event Viewer for any errors and, again, there were none.
I've previously had issues with the eConnect service not starting and I figured it was worth a try.
The post linked above, has step by step screenshots, but the gist of what I tried is as follows:
- Make the eConnect service account an admin in Local Users and Groups.
- Start the service and note that it started correctly and continued to run.
- Stop the service
- Remove the eConnect Service from the Admins group.
- Start the service and again note that it started and continued to run.
The service has continued to run correctly since then.
