Hi @veerasekar,


If this is a new installation, please make sure to follow the installation steps from our documentation for ThingWorx with PostgreSQL on Windows ?

At which step are you facing an issue ?

If my understanding is correct you are starting the Tomcat service and but it is shutting down. Are any ThingWorx logs getting created under <thingworx_home>/ThingworxStorage/logs ?
Please provide available Tomcat logs(<tomcat_home>/logs) and ThingWorx logs.


  1. Do these option appear if you right click the service?
  2. Does your Windows user have Administrator privileges?
  3. What happens if you start your Services app using "Run as Administrator" option?
  4. You could also try stopping & starting these services from command prompt using either 

net stop <service name>  and net start <service name>


sc stop <service name> and sc start <service name>
