Zabbix agent : Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion"

I got this error message while installing Zabbix 2.0 agent to one of my Windows 2008 servers.

"Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion"

My first reaction was thinking about the wrong timing of this. Then I remarked the .conf file which was inside the Windows agent package that I downloaded has been named as zabbix_agentd.win.conf , but the zabbix process was searching the zabbix_agentd.conf file.

I was registered the zabbix service with the zabbix_agentd.win.conf file. That was making this shit. After using the correct conf file ( zabbix_agentd.win.conf ), the problem has been solved.

Microsoft has also published a KB file, about this kind of service problems. Here is the link :
