FOG service on 0.10.6 not restarting after reboot

have you tried to alter the service startup from automatic to delayed?
Is this a client install after (sysprep, deployment) or a fixed test machine to play around with fog client?
“c:\Program Files (x86)\FOG” does not have a zazzles log file in it. It only has the .dll and .xml files in it.
Please check the FOG service installation directory for a zazzles.log
There is nothing in the FOG log after the reboot. The job is failing before it writes to it. Did you want the log before the reboot?
Again, I need to see the fog.log
I found two more entries in the Event Log. Here are all 3:
Task Scheduler service found a misconfiguration in the NT TASK\FOG\0@23@s definition. Additional Data: Error Value: C:\Program Files (x86)\FOGPower.exe.
The FOGService service failed to start due to the following error:
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion
A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the FOGService service to connect.
The first one is keeping GreenFog from working. The last one (first in time order) was why the FOGService failed. This should either have a much longer timeout or dependency as it is taking Windows 10 too long to initialize things.
That is how I detected that the service was not running. The fog.log stays at the last time stamp and never updates. So there are no entries there. But the event log has:
FOGService service failed to restart due to the following error: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
I need more information. Is there a fog.log? Can you start it manually (get the fog.log first before trying this)?
