Installation

Getting errors after installing Splunk 4.3.4 on a Windows 2003 server.

I just installed Splunk 4.3.4 on a Windows 2003 server to try it out but during the install I got the following error:

Application popup: Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library : Runtime Error!
Program: C:\Program Files\Splunk\bin\splunkweb.exe
R6034 
An application has made an attempt to load the C runtime library incorrectly. Please contact the application's support team for more information.

And a another similar one as well:

Application popup: Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library : Runtime Error!
Program: C:\Program Files\Splunk\bin\Python.EXE
R6034
An application has made an attempt to load the C runtime library incorrectly.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.

And then I get the same error in the event log when I try to start the services. I saw another post on this but the guy said that he uninstalled Python on the server and it worked, but I have Python scripts that run on the server and would rather not do that. Any ideas? I would really like to try out Splunk but can't until this is fixed. Thanks.

see the docs http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.3.0/Admin/AbouttheCLI

To set the $SPLUNK_HOME environment variable while working in a CLI session:

 In Windows: splunk.exe envvars > setSplunkEnv.bat & setSplunkEnv.bat

I'm seeing the same issue. When I tried:
splunk.exe envvars > setSplunkEnv.bat & setSplunkEnv.bat
setSplunkEnv.bat is an empty file.

I added the splunk/bin directory to the path environment variable with no change. Any other ideas? Thanks.

check your PATH and ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES, maybe your python is bypassing the one shipped with splunk.
