I'm trying to start LaunchPad service but it fails to start with:
Error 1053: "The service did not respond in a timely fashion"
I've been reading this was common in RC versions but I'm running SQL Server 2016 SP1 + CU3.
I've tried to add the SQLRUserGroup to the LogOnLocally user right assignment. The service still not run.
Also, there is no log in folder:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL13.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\Log\ExtensibilityLog
I've tried to change security of log folder including the NT Service\MSSQLLaunchpad and the SQLRUserGroup entries.
Any suggestion is appreciated
UPDATE: It was fixed reinstalling the SP1!
UPDATE2: We reproduced the issue simply by following these steps: install SQL 2016, Update it with SP1, Add R Services using the installation (no SP1).
