Stopping lawson service fails with “1053” error

, ,

The following error may occur when running a stoplaw command, or when stopping the lawson insight service from Windows services.

To resolve the issue, open the windows registry editor (regedit).  Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SYSTEM > CurrentControlSet > Control.  For 32-bit Windows systems, select New > DWORD.  For 64-bit Windows systems, select New > QWORD.  The name of the new value is “ServicesPipeTimeout”.  Set this value to a number of milliseconds that is appropriate for your environment (this may require trial & error).  Restart your machine and attempt a stoplaw command to verify.
