Windows could not start the SharePoint 2010 administration service on local computer.

Complete Error Message
Session state can only be used when enableSessionState is set to true, either in a configuration file or in the Page directive. Please also make sure that System.Web.SessionStateModule or a custom session state module is included in the <configuration>\<system.web>\<httpModules> section in the application configuration.
Before you start your troubleshooting, make sure that the State Service service application is running. How you will check this?

  • Open your Central Administration
  • Manage service applications
  • Check the service application by the name ‘state service service application’

Make the enableSessionState is set to true by following below step
<pages enableSessionState="true" enableViewState="true" enableViewStateMac="true" validateRequest="false" pageParserFilterType="Microsoft.SharePoint.ApplicationRuntime.SPPageParserFilter, Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" asyncTimeout="7">
Make sure that the remove and add lines exist in the modules section for Session.

<modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true">

<remove name="Session" />
<add name="Session" type="System.Web.SessionState.SessionStateModule" preCondition="" />


After implementing the above changes, the error should have to go away.
