I've been working on this for two days. I have an older Windows 2003 web server that I would like to forward IIS log files from. I have installed the universal forwarder 6.1.0 numerous times. Each time it fails with "Splunk Installer was unable to launch Splunk's First Time Run. Error Code: 128" complete error is listed below.
Event Type: Error
