Hi all,

Just changed service accounts for my SQL Server service (using configuration manager) but the server fails to start because, under the new user's profile, the CRYPTO folder does not exist in "...Application Data\Microsoft\".

I've searched the net, but everythign I come across regarding this folder is usually just a permissions issue, not a "folder does not exist" issue.

Anyone else ever encounter this issue?
