Simplest things down, downloaded the msi and installed on windows (Enterprise/free version) and then the Splunkuniversalforwarder as well.  restarted the local host and attempted to get to 127.0.0.1, cannot connect.

Opened up the directory in the C:... /splunk path and selected splunk.exe.  will this fix the issue?

Don't install Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Universal Forwarder on the same computer.  It's not clear if you did that or not.

Have you checked the firewalls on your computers?  That's the most common cause of connection problems.

That is good to note, since it was fresh install, just installed both and started fresh, will continue without the SplunkUniveralForwarder.
