  • Choose 'Automatic' from the 'Startup' dropdown list on the 'General' tab;
  • Choose 'Local System account' for the 'Log on as' option on the 'Log On' tab.

After finishing the configuration you should restart the services in the following order: the first is the 'Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server' and the second is the 'Microsoft Dynamics NAV Business Web Services'.
