Installer error - Service HDHomeRun Service failed to start

Post by jasonl »

During installation of the HDHomeRun software, you may receive an error stating "Service 'HDHomeRun Service' (HDHomeRun Service) failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services."

This error is due to the SSDP Discovery service being disabled. To re-enable the service:

1) Click the Start menu, right click on Computer and choose Manage

2) Expand Services and Applications and click on Services

3) Locate SSDP Discovery in the list, right click on it, and select Properties

4) Set the Startup type to Manual and then click OK

Once the service is enabled, run the installation program again
