The service for the Caché instance did not start.

Getting this error when starting up Caché: 

I've recently deleted several Caché namespaces to clear up space, turned Caché off, and then this started happening. Caché cube is grey, but only the start Caché option is unavailable. 

Caché is still running, but just not completely:


The Windows Event Viewer application has the following error: 

There are also the following logs in the mgr/cconsole.log file. I can provide more if necessary.

This is best to be handled by the WRC. Please contact and provide the full cconsole.log as well as the timing of your attempted startup and details of what you deleted, how, and when.

For what it's worth, my best hypothesis based on the snippets you provided is that you have custom startup code that isn't completing (possibly due to whatever you deleted), which is blocking startup from continuing.
