FineReader Server 14 - Server Manager does not start with error code 20050323


When trying to start the Server Manager service the error message may occur:

"Windows could not start the ABBYY FineReader Server 14.0 - Server Manager on Local Computer. For more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service specific error code 20050323."


The issue may be related to the LocalDB instances.


Clear the LocalDB instances.

    • C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Local DB\Instances
    • C:\Windows\Syswow64\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Local DB\Instances
    • C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Local DB\Instances
