Splunk Forwarder enable boot start not working on Windows XP

Path Finder

Hi, I have Universal Forwarder on my Windows XP machine. I enabled the boot-start upon installation but upon rebooting the machine, splunk forwarder is not running and it needs to start manually. Does anyone encounter this type of problem and do you have solutions for this. Thanks!

Hi @iancorrea,
which version have you? the last certified version is 6.1.14.

Did you tried to manually set the service start to automatic?
