Latest version of Bvckup2 on a W2019 server switching from desktop too service gives the error: An attempt to switch the engine to the service mode has failed. This is an unusual problem. etc

Tried both options of "Run service under"

Try this [1] - hold Ctrl button down when pressing Apply in the mode switch dialog. This will open a console window with the progress log, including any errors it runs into during the switch.

Have a look. It's usually pretty obvious what's causing the problem. If not, let me know and we'll take a look together.

Thank you for the 'trick'. The Bvckup2 folder in the ProgramData was allready present, after i deleted it the service was created with success.
