Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start

“I constantly receive an error notice when I try to start the Remote Access Connection Manager service. The error message says Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start. I’ve set up and installed all dependencies, including Remote Access Auto Connection Manager, Remote Access Connection Manager, Remote Procedure Call (RPC), and so on, but Remote Access Connection still won't start. What can I do about it?”

Error 1068

Three solutions to Remote Access Connection Manager Error 1068

Remote Access Connection Manager manages VPN connections from a computer to the Internet or other remote networks. If the service could not be started on the local computer, then VPN could not be connected either. Users who need to use VPN to remotely access resources on another network would be disappointed. Therefore, here we provide you with three ways to fix the Remote Access Connection Manager Error 1068.

Method 1. Enable Windows Event Log service

Step 1. Press WIN + R and then type in “services.msc” to open Services.


Step 2. Find and double-click Windows Event Log.

Step 3. Change its startup type into Automatic.

Step 3. Give a name for the file, then click Save. (This step is just in case if any error occurs during the process below)

Step 4. Double-click DependOnService on the right pane of Dhcp. Select all the data except “Afd”, then delete them.

AnyViewer: free & stable remote access without error

You can virtually log into your office’s local network and access resources that are already shared on the network, such as files, folders, and servers, using a VPN.

AnyViewer allows you to remotely control a computer or multiple computers at the same time. You’ll not only have access to the files and folders stored on the remote computer, but you can also fully control it, just like sitting in front of it.
