Why is error 0x8007043c being produced when trying to start the SEP (Symantec Endpoint Protection) user interface in safe mode?
When launching Symantec Endpoint Protection (from the Start menu) in Safe Mode the following error is displayed:
"It appears that the Symantec Management Client service is not running. You will not be able to manage network protection settings through the main user interface until it is running.
Do you want to start the service now?"
Clicking "Yes" will trigger the following error and the Symantec Endpoint Protection user interface will not open:
"Failed to start the Symantec Management Client service. Error code returned: 0x8007043c"
