Default Behavior

Routing and Remote Access is a Win32 service. In Windows 7 it is disabled and therefore it isn't starting. When the Routing and Remote Access service is started, it is running as localSystem in a shared process of svchost.exe. Other system components, such as drivers and services, may run in the same process. If Routing and Remote Access fails to start, Windows 7 attempts to write the failure details into Event Log. Then Windows 7 startup should proceed and the user should be notified that the RemoteAccess service is not running because of the error.

Dependencies

Routing and Remote Access is unable to start, if at least one of the following services is stopped or disabled:
