My server's starting, then stopping. Why?

I have a problem with my server. When I start the server the dispatcher (disp+work.exe) is getting started, but then it's stopping. I am using R/3 4.6B. Its sysid = DEV and the OS = 2003server.
This could be due to a number of reasons. My best recommendation at this time is to examine the developer tracer.

Within the SAP MMC, right-mouse click on the instance name and choose developer traces from the drop-down menu....

There, choose to examine the file dev_disp, dev_ms and see if there are any dev_wpX files exist.

Also, make sure that the system profiles exists under \usr\sap\ \sys\profile. Check that the services file contains the appropriate entries (example: sapMS xx).
