problems installing JRun

I have installed JRun several times and it still doesn't work. Everything seems to go fine until I click on "Finish". Then a couple of DOS-type windows flash on screen and disappear. Then I get a message "Internet Explorer cannot open the site http://localhost:8000/. A connection with the server could not be established". I can't open the JRun management console because "the JRun Admin Server is not running". Now what do I do?

go to the start menu go to the jrun folder and click on default server then once the opens hit the little x button in the corner then start the admin server and in the window that pops up click on "start" it should work. if not go to the logs for jrun and give us the errors.

I wonder if it might have anything to do with the way you have IE set up. If IE insists on going through a proxy, it might be too stupid to figure out that a proxy is not needed for localhost.
I'm using IE through a proxy, but I told IE that local stuff is not to go through the proxy.

This seems to happen sometimes also if the server has not had time to "reset" itself. For instance if you restart the default server and then immediately try to display a page, you get the same message. So you have to wait a few seconds... and then try again. I have had this happen on installation too. I just had to wait a few seconds to the admin server to be "ready"

I went to the start menu to the JRun folder and clicked on default server. Nothing happened. I clicked on admin server. Nothing happened. I clicked on JRun Management Console and got a message, "JRun Admin Server is not running. Please start it before running JRun Management Console."

I can't find any logs for JRun, at least nothing that fits *.log. Should I be looking for something else? I have a folder in Program Files\Allaire\JRun named "logs" but it's empty.

Never have used the proxy, but I looked & the "Use proxy server" box is not checked.

Netscape says, "There was no response. The server could be down or is not responding. If you are unable to connect again later, contact the server's administrator."

I waited and tried again and got an "Application Control" crash.

Any other suggestions?
