Jenkins will not start as Window Service error 1053


      Jenkins will no longer start as a Window Service after a symantec update to v14. It was working prior to this but I am not sure if this is related to the error.

      When I attempt to start Jenkins as a service I receive the error:

       " Windows could not start the Jenkins service on Local Computer.

      Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion"


      When I try to start it using cmd using the command "jenkins.exe start"I get this error: 

      "System.ArgumentNullException: Value cannot be null.

      Parameter name: path1

      at System.IO.Path.Combine(String path1, Stringpath2)

      at winsw.ServiceDescriptor..ctor()

      at winsw.WrapperService.Run(String[] _args)

      at winsw.WrapperService.Main(string[] args)"



      Does anyone have any idea on how to fix this?

      I tried using https://support.symantec.com/en_US/article.TECH193916.html

      and I also tried creating a jenkins.exe.config file to prevent the firewall from blocking it
