I am trying to setup a Windows service for our new install of 3.3. The Server is running on Windows 2008 R2. I followed the instructions from the Installation and Administration guide and was able to setup a service. When I try to start the service, it starts OK and I can browse to the web page. However when I try to login, I get the error:
"Unknown failure, check service logs for more details"
However I am not able to find the logs anyways. I have looked in event viewer, in the Snap Creator server directory, all with no luck. Can anyone point me to these logs? When I start the service up manually and not through a Windows service the GUI console works with no issue.
I have installed java 1.6.0-24 and have tried using both the jdk and jre binaries.
The more details section of the logs shows:
==TIME== 2011-03-30 10:30:15,346
==MESSAGE== Unknown failure. Check service logs for more details.
==DETAILS== No details are availble.

This is a known issue w/2008 and using this method to create service does not work. If you figure out how to get service working on 2008 please post. Workaround is to use task scheduler and start GUI when system starts In the next release we are working on creating a legit service, just not there quite yet Regards, Keith
Try adding the java call to run snapcreator.jar in .bat file. Test .bat file make sure gui starts if so add .bat file as task and test. I have seen issues where windows task manager cant handle certain arguments. Let me know if this works Keith
