I just started getting this very problem
on a Windows XP-Pro condor cluster running 6.8.3. This after 2 years of
successful condor usage! Coinciding with the condor problem was a
registry cleaning and removal of unused programs, so I’m sure it’s
something I did—but what? Condor is successfully still running on
other machines in the pool (all Windows).
has permission to write to the log directory but absolutely no log is created
and .local are in proper location.
Event Viewer records the error but gives no other clues.
registry has the two required key entries (126.96.36.199 Manual Installation Condor
doesn’t fix it.

Make sure that your condor_config and condor_config.local files are in the
expected locations. I just recently had this error when I forgot to
remove a .txt extension after copying my config file from another location.
Also, make sure that condor can write to the logfile location.
Best of luck,

Have you looked at the condor logs (specifically the master log) and
the windows event logs...
