Failed to install Resilion Sync Service

Recommended Posts


Trying to resinstall latest version on win10.1909 after resilio lost all syncs.

To uninstall I've:

  • Done a normal windows remove programs
  • Deleted %appdata%/Resilio*
  • Manually deleted the service with sc.exe delete rslsyncsvc through powershell with elevated rights
  • Run ccleaner which picked up some resgistry keys but maybe I'm missing some?

When Trying to install resilio I choose the 'add as system service' option  and, at the point I'd expect it to add in username and password I just get a "Failed to install Resilion Sync Service" dialogue box. Though the btsyncsvc_ log  in %LocalTemp it seems to install ok, and a services is installed only without any username

I can't then start the service even if I change it to be under the correct user account, or local account in services.msc - Shows error 5 Accesss is denied.

Eventvwr shows a Event ID 7000 Error -The Resilio Sync Service service failed to start due to the following error:
Access is denied.

Disabling windows defender doesn't seem to make any difference.

Is there somewhere I can download previous versions to rule that out please. Can't seem to find them.

Many thanks in advance for any help you can give.
