Universal forwarder setup wizard ended prematurely on Windows 10. I've tried all the suggestions from the thread that had similar issues and it didn't work.

Thanks in advance!

Hi  @gardnernspace11 

Hope you are having correct permission and using compatible splunk UF version for installation (64bit or 32 bit ) , to match with your system configuration

can you please check first_install.log  from from following location and was it showing any errors?. 

C:\Program Files\Splunk\var\log\splunk\first_install.log 

Also can you check splunkd.log errors about installation of UF from same location  

if above steps doesnt help 

can you try to to clean installation  from cmd using following command 

Replace <splunk forwarder......>.msi with actual msi name 

msiexec.exe /i splunkforwarder_x64.msi AGREETOLICENSE=yes SPLUNKUSERNAME=SplunkAdmin SPLUNKPASSWORD=Ch@ng3d! /quiet
