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.

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.

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
