  1. Windows Process Activation Service failing to start get error 15 or in event log Event ID 5217


    Since installing the latest update Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.18362.418] - My IIS no long runs. The Windows Process Activation Service (WAS) will not start. If I try manually start it, it gives Error 15 - if I go to the event log I see

    "The Windows Process Activation Service (WAS) encountered an error while handling key generation. This will prevent WAS from starting currently. The data field contains the error number." Event ID is 5217.


    I have tried deleting the Nano registry entry and copy applicationHost.config applicationHost.config.tmp in the config folder. As recommended on this forum but still no go. I even tried to change the login to use administrator but that did not work either - a little stuck


    HELP

    :)
