FME Server Installer Does Not Create the Database Service

The FME Server Database service is not created during installation, and FME Server does not run properly.


These errors and others are usually caused by the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable not being installed as part of the FME Server installation. Potential reasons for the failure include:

  • User Account Control (UAC) settings on the system prevent the installation
  • The FME installer was corrupted during download
  • The Windows Installer (used to install *.msi files) on the system is not up to date
