Default Behavior

Sensor Data Service is a Win32 service. In Windows 10 it is starting only if the user, an application or another service starts it. When the Sensor Data Service is started, it is running as LocalSystem in its own process of SensorDataService.exe. If Sensor Data Service fails to start, the failure details are being recorded into Event Log. Then Windows 10 will start up and notify the user that the SensorDataService service has failed to start due to the error.
