I am using WAS4.0 single server on XP and after installation I cannot start it from start>programs.. so I go to directory and click startserver.bat but nothing show up... server doesnt start.. I call firststeps.bat and click start server and I get WSPL0030E: The server launch could not be initiated. WSPL0031E: Exception: The system cannot find the file specified. Can someone help?
Could you check the tracefile/log file for the app server to check if there are any further errors reported? - The log files are generally in <appserverroot>/logs Also, have you tried to open a command window and try invoking startserver.bat from there???

It does not work from the command prompt as well.. The error is [03.09.11 11:10:55:439 EDT] c11c76e Server U Version : 4.0.1 [03.09.11 11:10:55:459 EDT] c11c76e Server U Edition: Advanced Single Server Edition for Multiplatforms [03.09.11 11:10:55:459 EDT] c11c76e Server U Build date: Wed Aug 08 00:00:00 EDT 2001 [03.09.11 11:10:55:459 EDT] c11c76e Server U Build number: a0131.06 [03.09.11 11:10:59:794 EDT] c11c76e NameServer F NMSV0011E: Unable to start bootstrap server using port localhost:900.

However I have changed the bootstrap port in server-cfg.xml to be 901.. Still I doono why it gives this error?
Priya, I didn't check fully but from your error message, it says some other application server or process is running on port 900. If no other server than start the admin console to see if the server is running already.

Priya As it suggests.. there are 3 possibilities -1. User does not have enought privileges -2. Port No. confict. -3. admin server already running I presume 1. is not a problem. Reg. 2, i am not sure server-cfg.xml handles the port setting... i thought it was something like admin-cfg.xml.. but never mind... it is attempting to start on 900. thats waht we have to consider. check with netstat what program is running. Just open a command window(dos) and run netstat. 3. Try to start the admin console. If it opens, it means the admin server is already running. it could have been started as a service.
