GSX Gizmo Analytics Windows Service timing out During Start

The GSX Gizmo Analytics Windows Service fails to start. In the Event Viewer, you will see a message stating that the service did not respond in a timely fashion. We will solve this issue by creating a new registry key in the Windows Registry to increase the start timeout settings of all Windows Services.

  3. Right-click HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control and select New - DWORD (32-bit) Value.
  4. In the right pane of Registry Editor a new value named New Value #1 will appear.
  5. Rename New Value #1 to ServicesPipeTimeout, and press return.
  6. Right-click the ServicesPipeTimeout registry entry and choose Modify.
    • The Edit DWORD (32-bit) Value dialog box will appear.
  7. Click Decimal as the Base option.
  8. In the Value data text box, type your new timeout value (milliseconds): 
    • Example for a three-minute timeout: 180000
  9. Click OK.
  10. Restart the computer.

The GSX Gizmo Analytics service will now start without issue.
