  • Modify the key ServicesPipeTimeout if it exists, and change the actual value to 120000 (keep in mind you must enter a decimal value)
  • If the key does not exist, you can create it: ServicesPipeTimeout (type : DWORD / decimal) value: 120000. The value is in milliseconds (120000 = 120s = 2mn)
  • Reboot the computer
