  • Next, right-click on the service and select Properties in the pop-up menu.
  • In the invoked window set the Startup type to Automatic.
  • Click the Log On tab and make sure the Log on as: is set to Local System account. Click OK.
  • Finally, right-click on the service again and select Start in the pop-up menu.

If there is no specified service in the list or if you get the “The system cannot find the file specified” error on an attempt to start the service please do the following:

  • Firstly, download the latest build of the product;
  • Then, run the installation file and select Repair

After updating to the latest build of the product, it will automatically launch Acronis Scheduler2 Service, if it the service status is not set to Disabled.
