I have been trying to install Splunk on Windows 10, but it gives me an error that says "Splunk enterprise setup wizard ended prematurely because of an error". I have tried installing it in command prompt running as an administrator, but it does not work either.

Hello Giuseppe

As far as I know I only have basic configurations in my firewall and anti-virus, however if there are any specific settings that you might know please let me know. I am not blocking any ports that could prevent me from downloading it either. It starts downloading but then it stops prematurely and rolls back. I tried downloading it in my desktop, then used a VM with a Linux OS and it didnt work either. Yes I am trying to download the latest version and tried different versions too. It seems like this is not for me

Hi @mofonguero,

as I said, disable any personal firewall you have.

Then see at "C:\Program Files\Splunk\var\log\splunk" if there's some log file about the installation.

Ciao.
