When you click OK, you are still in the Restoring Database Store window. The restore did not begin and no services were stopped.
This behavior occurs when the Temporary location for log and patch files box in the Restoring Database Store window contains an invalid entry. Some examples are:

- The window contains a path to a mapped network drive.
- The window contains a path to a drive or directory where it cannot create files.
