Environment

Microsoft Windows 2003 server. 

Situation

Unable to start WebAccess agent (default name is WEBAC80A) service.
Various application errors in an Event Viewer.
Starting WEBAC80A service with startup parameter /ph is successful.
Staring WebAccess from BAT file as a DOS application works fine.

Resolution

The problem is caused by the WebAccess agent not being able to find its startup file.

Current workaround is to change a Windows registry. Go into HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE | System | ControlSet001 | Services | WebAccess (WEBAC70A) and find the WORD Parm. Edit its value and change it in @C:\webacc\webac80a.waa. The Webaccess service can start successfully afterwards.
