Why is splunkweb not starting after a new Splunk installation on Windows 8 64-bit?

New Member

I am new to splunk and i downloaded and installed splunk in my windows 8 OS-64 bit. After installation Splunkd is working but splunkweb fails to start. I have tried starting, but no success. Restarting the splunkweb service does the same thing. It is running for few seconds and it stops. Please advise.

I have already experience this problem on Windows 8 with 64bit Splunk6.2.0
and I have download another version of splunk (Splunk6.2.2 -64bit) and working properly. so this is why I propose you download another version of splunk as Splunk-6.2.2-... or
splunk-6.2.3-264376-x64-release.msi
go this link to download: http://www.splunk.com/en_us/download/splunk-enterprise.html
tek this: splunk-6.2.3-264376-x64-release.msi

splunkweb is no longer included in 6.2. It's all rolled into splunkd. So there's no need to worry about splunkweb not starting. That is by design. Thanks.
