Dev Test 10.7.2 version installed on local machine but getting timeout errors due to registry not up.



Release : 10.7.2


Had installed fresh on Windows 11 machine.

After install brought up Workstation and could not log in due to timeout to Registry.

The reason for the error was the DevTest 10.7.2 services were not created during install.

They were not created because the user doing the install did not have the right permissions to create services.

Tried to create a service manually, but got "Access is denied" error.


Had to start all the server components manually as a workaround. Started components in the order:


For Start Order Sequence and Ways You Can Start DevTest Server refer to this documentation link:
