When you try to start an FME Server Windows Service, you receive an Error 1067 and the service will not start.

Error 1067: The process terminated unexpectedly.



Common issues that cause the 1067 error:

On Windows OS, the User or Service Account configured to 'Logon As' for the FME Server Service does not have correct permissions.

SSL Configuration [in case its the FME server Web Application Service that won't start]  


Try changing the account that is used to start the Windows Service. The account needs to have permission to read and write into the FME Server System Share.

  • Ensure that each configuration file (server.xml, web.xml, context.xml) contains valid XML syntax. This can be done quickly in a text editor or online validation tool. 
  • When removing or commenting out sections of the configuration files, ensure that the entire section is contained. 
  • If the certificate requires a password, make sure all special characters have been escaped using XML entity replacements


If this does not solve your issue, then please contact the Safe Support Team.
