    Web Publishing Engine Won't start


      Hi all,

      I've just installed FM Server Advanced on Windows 2008 R2 system (a new install) and for the most part everything went fine. I did have IIS installed and running prior to the installation but the installation wizard didn't seem to find it. After the installation, and installing FM Server updates, I was able to add the web server through the Management Console. However, the web publising engine still won't start. No error messages that I could find, simply a pop-up stating the Web Publishing Engnine couldn't start. I've checked pretty much everything I can think of. IIS seems to be running correctly (I can get the default web site), FileMaker Server is hosting files through FM networking, all else seems good.


      Before I uninstall and start over again I thought I check here to see if anyone has additional suggestions for things to check.


      Thanks for any input.
