BO Services fail to start. Windows XP Home


I have a machine dedicated to Business Objects XI and Crystal Reports. When I go to the Central Configuration Manager I can see all services/servers are running except:

1. Connection Server.

2. Desktop Intelligence Report Server.

3. Desktop Intelligence Cache Server.

4. Web Intelligence Report Server.

Trying to start any one of the above manually results in an error message in less that 1 second. The error is:

"The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion"

The machine is running Windows XP Home edition with SP2. Is that what's causing the above error? or is there anythng else I should check?

Thank you in advance.
