@nagarjun1, that's a pretty strange error that implies a pretty low-level incompatibility in one of the Java classes used in Logstash core (i.e., MessageDigest.digest() is returning a String rather than a byte[]). I do not get this error when running LS 6.7.0 with Oracle Java 1.8.0_201-b09 on Windows Server 2016. Do you have anything in your CLASSPATH environment variable or anything unusual in your Logstash pipeline definition?

The Java path is set as : JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_201.

Using the default config file : logstash-sample.conf.

unfortunatley im not able start the logstash from command prompt also.
