PSEMAgent on a Windows 2008R2 64 bit server running as a service does not report anything to the PSEMHub and generates no log. Running it from the command line works fine. Also Shutting down the running Service gets stuck in stopping, will not completely shutdown.

PSEMAgent as a windows service should report PSEMHub activity and generate log. It should also start and stop as expected.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Start psemagent service.
2. Go to Patching Target Database screen.

The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, the agent has to be run manually, instead of as a service.
