[CLOSED] Webconsole won't run but reports do
Hi WF community,
I installed WF8 without errors. I ran diagnostics without errors.
I did have an issue before this with Java so I had to reinstall that and delete JAVA_HOME.
I recreated JAVA_HOME, JDK_HOME and JRE_HOME but I'm not completely sure I did this correctly.
I can run ibisample reports from Dev Studio.

I can not run BIP, Webconsole or Welcome page.
I get no errors but the Win7 circle just keeps spinning.

I realize that there are not many of you using WF8 but I'm lookiing for direction from past experience with other versions of WF on how to get the Webconsole to execute.

Any help is most appreciated.

There are logs for windows 8 that you should be able to access on the machine where you have the webfocus 8 client installed. If you are using tomcat you may also want to check those logs as you could be hitting an out of memory condition.
