We have a 2011 SP1 CM server that we've recently updated with HR1 - it didn't have the Publisher installed as this was on a separate server.
This other server is being re-purposed, so I went and installed the Publisher from the 2011 SP1 CM installer.
Sadly the Publisher service won't start - I get "Error 1068 The dependency service or group failed to start."
Anyone seen this before? Could it be caused by installing a 2011 SP1 Publisher into a 2011 SP1 HR1 CM?
