Admin Server process has terminated abnormally

I've read through various other discussions to help with my issue. I've reinstalled multiple times, followed the Getting Started guide and checked the pre-requisites. I've checked that IIS is installed and running (CGI too). I've used "netstat -ano|grep 16000" to make sure the port is available. I see port 5003 is in use by the actual server. I've turned off the firewall completely. Anti-virus is disabled.


However the Admin server will still not start. I've checked the Windows log and the C:Program FilesFileMakerFileMaker ServerLogsEvent.log. Attached is the log from a brand new install. The last line "Admin Server process has terminated abnormally." repeats numerous times with nothing in between every time I run "fmsadmin restart adminserver".


FileMaker Server 12.0v3 x64 (09-20-2012)...

Microsoft Windows 7 x64 (6.1.7601, Service Pack 1), with 8 logical processor core(s)


My next step is to try the install on a new install of a Virtual Windows 2008 Server to see if it's just my local development machine with the issue.



Any help is greatly appreciated!
