Why the Error 193 0xc1 service fails to start in Windows?
Error 193 0xc1 is occurred when it fails to find the exact path of the execution file. The other possibility is if there are any files with the same name in the directory as the first word in the directory name.
In order to remove the error we make sure that there is no file present in System drive with name ‘Program’ or ‘Common’. If the file is present then we immediately rename it or move it somewhere else.
Main causes of the Error 193 0xc1
1. The error occurs when there is a file named ‘Program’ in the System Drive folder or there is a file named ‘Common’ in the Program Files folder. When the Windows service control manager tries to start the Server service, the program verifies the following paths.
- System Drive\Program
- Program Files\Common
If the Program or Common paths exist as files, then the Service Control Manager cannot locate the required folders and which shows the below error.
2. If the path of a service’s executable file contains spaces then it shows the same error.
3. The other reason for the error is if the file or folder on the computer’s hard disk that has the same name as a file or folder in the path to the service’s executable file.
