SplunkD never starts successfully. This is the first time Splunk has ever been installed on this machine. The machine is running Windows XP service pack 2. The Splunk version installed is splunk-4.1.6-89596-x86-release.msi. Below I've pasted the last log entry in SplunkD.log before the crash and the crash file that is produced when you try to manually start the SplunkD Service.
