Can't start Elasticsearch 7 service on Windows

(Daniel D'Agostino) #1


I'm trying to set up Elasticsearch on my Windows machine. I've done it before, but now I'm doing it again with version 7.0.0.

I set JAVA_HOME and can run Elasticsearch successfully with elasticsearch.bat (I can confirm that I get a response when browsing localhost:9200).

Next, I install the service by runnng elasticsearch-service.bat install. The installation succeeds, and I can see the service. However, it won't start. When checking Event Viewer, I see the following error:

The Elasticsearch 7.0.0 (elasticsearch-service-x64) service terminated with the following service-specific error:
Incorrect function.

I have no idea what this means.

The path to the executable that the service uses is set to:

C:[...]\elasticsearch-7.0.0\bin\elasticsearch-service-x64.exe //RS//elasticsearch-service-x64

Can anyone help identify what the problem is here, please?

Thanks in advance.

Which version of Windows are you on? What version of java are you using?

And just to confirm, you said that you previously had installed elasticsearch. Did you remove the service from the old version?

Windows 10.

Java: openjdk 12 2019-03-19.

Yes, I had removed the service from the old version. I tried reinstalling the service after the failure but nothing changed.
