Try it from Central Admin first, see: http://troyscott.ca/2010/08/06/cannot-start-service-spusercodev4-on-computer/

enter image description here


Go to run and type services.msc and open it. Please found SharePoint 2010 User Code Host and make sure that it is started. Once the Service starts the issue will resolved.


Go to Central Administration Central > System Settings > Manage services on server and make sure the "Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Sandboxed Code Service" is started.

  • "Microsoft SharePoint Foundation User Code Service" is not listed over there!!

  • Sorry, make that the "Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Sandboxed Code Service." May 28, 2012 at 13:06

The TechNet article Enable sandboxed solutions on the farm (SharePoint Foundation 2010) lists two methods for starting the service:

  1. From the Services on Server page of the Central Administration website, click Start in the Action column of the Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Sandboxed Code Service row.
  2. From PowerShell, execute the following command: Start-Service -Name SPUserCodeV4
