Getting Data In

Why is splunkweb process not running after Splunk installation on Windows 7?

Explorer

I installed Splunk on a Windows 7 but localhost:8000 not opens. In there is service in splunkd but there are no splunkweb in processlist. var\logs\splunk.log has no any "crash" it.
When i click on shorcut to lunch Splunk, i see cmd window:
"waiting for splunkweb to start..."
