Error After Installation of Microsoft Dynamics Navision R2.

Hi Readers,

While trying to install the Navision 2009 R2, most of us get the below given error.

“Service 'Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server' (MicrosoftDynamicsNavServer) failed to start.  Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services.”

I tried to install it many times but faced same error again and again so I tried to look into windows Event Viewer to check the cause of problem, and I got the resolution at same point.

I copied the whole error description and I copied that.

The service MicrosoftDynamicsNavServer failed to start. This could be caused by a configuration error. Detailed error information:Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.Types.NavConfigurationException: The configured time zone identifier "UTC" for the setting "WebServicesDefaultTimeZone" was not recognized.

Then I found out that I need to change time zone in customsettings.config file in the service folder of Navision installation.
I replaced the UTC parameter of time zone to Server time zone (for India) and the service started successfully.

So if anyone is facing same problem can copy paste the time zone (according to their local time zone) from above list and replace same with UTC parameter in the custom setting.config file.
