V7 - Service cannot be started

on 3/5/13, 10:29 AM 2,311 views

I am running latest exe version of OpenERP v7 on Windows 2003. While clicking start service against "OpenERP Server 7.0", it cannot be started and there's an error record in event viewer such as the following:

The instance's SvcRun() method failed 
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "win32serviceutil.pyo", line 806, in SvcRun
File "OpenERPServerService.pyo", line 71, in SvcDoRun
SystemExit: 255 
%2: %3

Has anyone come across the same issue? Much appreciate if any input on it.

Regards Sage
