Windows 7 64Bit
Splunk ran after first installating. After reset, I am unable to start it.
When I run "Splunk.exe" command prompt opens for a flash and mentions "access to RegCreatKeyEx denied".
No splunk services are running at all after executing.
When I attempt to log in it states "invalid username and password"
Here is the splunkd.log

This is not how you start Splunk. On Windows, Splunk runs as a service. Go to the Services panel and start Splunk from there.
To login to Splunk, you must use a web browser. In Firefox or IE, for example, you could do this:
hostname is the domain name of the machine where you installed Splunk. The default user name is
admin and the initial password is
There will not be a user named
lucoot unless you created a user by that name. If you are unsure, go to the directory where you installed Splunk (call it
splunk_home) and then go to the
etc subdirectory and look at the file called
You won't be able to see the passwords, since they are encrypted, but at least you will be able to see what users exist.
If you have forgotten the password, you can reset it following the directions here: How could I reset the Admin password?
I am using it through the browser, that is how I am typing in my password and username. Which do not work. Sorry, the service is running, I was mistakenly looking at running applications.

I've got the same issue. It not admin password from Splunk server. Login admin and password is default by client one.
I just used command
./splunk add forward-server :9997
Splunk username: admin
Added forwarding to: xx.xx.xx.xxx:9997.
