Unable to run SonarQube 5.3 as a service on Windows

I'm unable to run SonarQube 5.3 as a service on Windows Server 2012 or windows 10. It runs fine using StartSonar.bat but when installed and run as a service there is the error

"The SonarQube service on Local Computer started then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs."

I've tried a specific service user with local admin access and the "Local System account" user with the same result.

I have tested starting the service specifying a desktop user with Local Administrator access which works OK but our policy is to use a specific service user for services.

I've tried using JDK 8 64bit and JDK 7 32 bit with the same results

Ther contents of sonar.log are

Using tick timer.

With the windows service user added locally and given desktop interaction priviliges I can now start the SonarQube service.

Configure SonarQube service to not use the Local System account, but another user with more privileges.

Migrate SonarQube from Tomcat to a Windows service
