While installing the 32-bit FME Server, the installation seems successful, but FME Server will not start. In Windows Services, the FME Database Service will not be visible.


The 64-bit version of the C++ runtime is needed in the installer because Postgres is now 64-bit, but we only install the 32-bit version of the C++ runtime with the 32-bit installer.


The workaround is to install the 64-bit version of the C++ runtime before running the installer. It can be download from here:
