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.

Solution:

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

    I also modified “User Rights Assignment” under “Local Security Policy” along with the ones suggested here. Good job. Thanks

    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!! 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.
