VMware: View–Error 1920. Service VMware View Composer (svid) failed to start
Today I was installing VMware View in my homelab, after trying to install VMware View Composer 2.7 I received this error message:
Error 1920. Service VMware View Composer (svid) failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services.
After creating a new ODBC connection to my SQL server I still can’t finish the installation, the installation want to start service: VMware View Composer (svid).. after changing the logon service with the credentials I used for the ODBC I was able to start the service and finish the setup

Thanks, this solved my installation issue!
Cool! I meeted the same issue and sovled it that user your solution.
Thanks! Worked on composer 3.0 also.
I also modified “User Rights Assignment” under “Local Security Policy” along with the ones suggested here. Good job. Thanks
Thankyou for helping out
Thanks a lot.. It worked for me..
How do you find the “VMware View Composer Properties (Local Computer)” window?
Under Services; start > run > services.msc
To work around the issue turn off Automatic Root Certificates Update.
In order to Turn off Automatic Root Certificates Update:
Click Start > Run, type gpedit.msc, and click OK.
In the left pane,under Local Computer Policy, Click Computer Configuration
In the right pane, double-click these folders, Administrative Templates > System > Internet Communication Management > Internet Communication Settings.
Right-click Turn off Automatic Root Certificates Update and click Edit.
Select Enabled and click OK.
Then click “Retry” in installer.
Tried the following, none helped:
Changed the service account to local administrator, domain administrator.
Installed MS KB http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2677070, as per VMware KB http://kb.vmware.com/kb/2081888
Verified the account used to create the DSN in ODBC is the owner of the DB as per VMware KB, http://kb.vmware.com/kb/2030823
Thank you Jenya
Thank you! VMware KB article said NOT to do that. Greatly appreciated!
Nice solution and works!
Tks for the publish.
Thank you!! I have been searching all over the web for a solution. All I could find was what Jenya posted unfortunately my server is 2012 and also is connected to the internet. Even though I have composer 7, this solution still works. Much appreciated! I know this is a super old post, but I hope this helps anybody else with a newer version of composer.
This had been driving me crazy for over two hours!! Thank you!!!
Fixed my issue too. Thanks,
I really appreciate it.
My heart was about to break down.
