    IWP Cannot Start FMP12


      Hello All!


      When I try to enable IWP for my database, it tells me that it could not enable it because IWP could not be started. I am running FMP12 on Windows 8.1 with no other versions of FMP on my machine. What is the problem here? Any help would be much appreciated! Thank you in advance!

          Hi Mike,


          I googled for that issue and found out... and old post of mine .


          In my case, I couldn't start IWP in FMP12 after installing FMP13, that updated Java to a newer version. Java version is still an issue with FMP and FMS.


          Thing is FMP12 needs a specific version of Java because it was tested with it. Try to find Java version needed for FMP12, and check if the installed version is newer. If that's the case, I am pretty sure that's the cause of the issue. Interestingly enough, you may have more than one version of Java installed on a computer, but can't tell if that could break something else. This is very tricky. One other thing you may try is uninstall the actual version and install the one FMP12 is confortable with.


          Hope that helps

            Did you check the port 80 is not used before running FMP12?


            Open command prompt then

            netstat -an -p tcp

              Opened the ports and it is working now. Thank you!
