How to Fix the Unity Asset Server error “Cannot Start Service” on Windows

The Unity Asset Server is a fantastic tool for version control and collaborating with a group of people on a project in Unity3D.  Our customers at ReactionGrid Inc. primarily use Windows servers, and some of them are running their own Unity Asset Servers to facilitate working together on Jibe projects.

I recently learned of a bug that might affect folks running their own Unity Asset Server on Windows.  Fortunately it’s not serious at all (just annoying as heck), and the fix is incredibly easy and permanent.

Are you running the Unity Asset Server on a Windows machine?

Has it suddenly stopped working, refusing to start no matter what you do?

Do you immediately see the following popup error when using the Unity Asset Server Control Panel?
