I have tried to use my own userinformation for the service but while starting the service within the servicelist I get an error 1067 "Could not start the QlikView Distribution Service service on Local Conputer." and my user is administrator on the server and has the permission to run services.
Furthermore I have tried it with a different user but also with the same result.
I have de same problem.

WRN: Assembly binding logging is turned OFF.
To enable assembly bind failure logging, set the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog] (DWORD) to 1.
Note: There is some performance penalty associated with assembly bind failure logging.
To turn this feature off, remove the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog].

I had this problem today, and fixed by adding the 'Application Server' role to the server. (only .Net framework... not the web server).
I installed the .Net framework manually, but most of the QV services would not start. I went back and configured this 'Role', and then everything was able to start. (this applies to windows 2008)
