It appears with the upgrade Microsoft is turning on “World Wide Web Publishing” Service by default. This is preventing Apache(part of DesktopServer) from starting.

Go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services
Find “World Wide Web Publishing Service”
Right click and select “Stop”
Right click and select “Properties”, then change “Startup type” to “Manual”

You should then be able to start up DesktopServer.
