error 1053 starting custom windows service

P: n/a
mtc
I'm able to install and run a service I built on two machines - the one I
built it on and another that has visual studio installed. I've installed it
without problems on 3 other machines that don't have visual studio, but when
I try to start the service it immediately fails with error 1053: The service
did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

The computers are all up-to-date with SP's and the .Net framework redist.

It also logs an error to the application event log:
The description for Event ID ( 0 ) in Source ( .NET Runtime ) cannot be
found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry
information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote
computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this
description; see Help and Support for details. The following information
is part of the event: .NET Runtime version 1.1.4322.2032-
conaxmailreceiver.exe - Common Language Runtime Debugging Services:
Application has generated an exception that could not be handled.
