Auditbeat windows service consistently fails


I've been using audit beats on my centos servers without issue so far but getting the service to run on windows is eluding me. I can run audit beat in a console with the -e flag and it runs fine.

If I use the "install-service-auditbeat.ps1" file, the service is installed as expected but when I start it it always gives an error: "Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion."

The windows event log doesn't give anything away and I can't find any logs that would help.

I am using audit beat 7.3 (same happened with 7.2), any idea how to debug or hints how to get the service running would be much appreciated
