How to start “Interactive Service Detection” service on Windows 8/2012

Attempting to start the Interactive Service Detection (UI0Detect) service on Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 can fail with the incomprehensible “Error 1: Incorrect function” message:

This is because Microsoft has disabled interactive services in these new operating systems!

Fortunately, it is easy to re-enable interactive services by editing the registry:

  1. start regedit
  2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Windows on the left side
  3. On the right, double-click the NoInteractiveServices entry and change its value from 1 to 0
  4. Click OK to record your change
  5. Close the registry editor
