Scenario:

The build controller and the build agents stop within few seconds, after started.

Reason:

The “Visual Studio Team Foundation Build Service Host 2012” service depends upon the “Remote Access Connection Manager” service and the “Telephony” service.

Resolution:

The dependencies of the “Remote Access Connection Manager” service and the “Telephony” service are not shown in the “properties” of the “Visual Studio Team Foundation Build Service Host 2012” service.

Start the above mentioned two dependency services (whichever is not started), then the build controller and build agents do not stop abruptly.

Note: The “Remote Access Connection Manager” is dependent on “Secure Socket Tunneling Protocol Service”. Also, the “Telephony” service is dependent on “Plug and Play” service and “Remote Procedure Call” service. It will be a good practice to check if these extra services are started as well.
