EDPA service is not getting started on the endpoint machine while WDP is running fine.

Observation so far:

1. AV exclusions in place
2. Local Admin account used for installing the agent.
3. After a reboot, EDPA service gets started for few seconds but stopped again.
4. Tried re-installing the endpoint agent but the issue still persists.
