After changing the Windows Service account and password and signing into the Applications Manager (AM) UI, the Agent is stopped.  Right clicking on the Agent and pressing START does not restart the Agent, instead the above error is displayed.
OS: Windows Server 2012
OS Version: N/A
Cause type:
Root Cause: The AWW service must be the same User as the User the process is being started as.
  1. Login to the Windows system as the user that is assigned to AM's AWW service, and start the processes.
  1. Go to the %AW_HOME%\bin folder, and rename watchstart.hold to watchstart.bat. Then restart the AWW service. This will make the watchworx service start the Applications Manager processes using the same user as is assigned to the AWW service.
