Error While Configuring SharePoint 2010 Release Candidate

While Configuring SharePoint 2010 RC on my Virtual Machine I faced a problem in Step 5 of 10 While Starting Search Service. It Sends a Timeout Exception and terminates the Configuration Wizard

To Over Come this problem:

1. Open Services from Administrative Tools
2. From Start Menu Start SharePoint Products and Configurations Wizard
3. When the Configuration reaches step 5 of 10 while Configuring SharePoint Search Service Go to Services and Find the Microsoft SharePoint Search Service

1. Change Service Logon to Local Account

2. And Start the Service

Do the Same for the SharePoint Search Foundation


I hope this Will Help
