Default Behavior

Enterprise App Management Service is a Win32 service. In Windows 10 it is starting only if the user, an application or another service starts it. When the Enterprise App Management Service is started, it is running as LocalSystem in a shared process of svchost.exe along with other services. If Enterprise App Management 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 EntAppSvc service has failed to start due to the error.


Enterprise App Management Service cannot be started under any conditions, if the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service is disabled.

Restore Default Startup Configuration of Enterprise App Management Service

Before you begin doing this, make sure that all the services on which Enterprise App Management Service depends are configured by default and function properly. See the list of dependencies above.

1. Run the Command Prompt as an administrator.

2. Copy the command below, paste it into the command window and press ENTER:

sc config EntAppSvc start= demand

3. Close the command window and restart the computer.

The EntAppSvc service is using the EnterpriseAppMgmtSvc.dll file that is located in the C:\Windows\system32 directory. If the file is removed or corrupted, read this article to restore its original version from Windows 10 installation media.
