Error 1068 Dependency Service Or Group Failed To Start.

If you receive the message “Error 1068: The dependency or group failed to start the WLAN Auto Config service on the local computer” and your WLAN service won’t start, here’s a workaround. Click “Start” then in the search box type without quotes “regedit”. In the search result, right-click “regedit” then select “Run as administrator.” In the Registry Editor window, go to this location:

  • [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Dhcp]

On the right of the screen, look for and double-click “DependOnService.” Under “Value data,” delete everything except for “Afd” then click “OK.”

Registry Editor Dhcp DependOnService

Next, navigate to this location on the registry:

  • [ HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\EapHost]

The same thing, look for and double-click “DependOnService.” Under “Value data,” delete everything then click “OK.”

Registry Editor EapHost DependOnService

Exit the Registry Editor window and restart the computer. See if this fixes the problem. On the other hand, if you receive the same message “Error 1068: The dependency or group failed to start” but for the Print Spooler service, here’s a workaround. Click “Start,” “All Programs,” “Accessories” then right-click “Command Prompt” and select “Run as administrator.”

In the command prompt window, type the following commands then hit Enter after every command:

net stop spooler
sc config spooler depend= RPCSS
net start spooler
exit

Try it again and see if it works.
