You've tried running the Windows installer and LAMS doesn't work.
Before posting to the Problems Installing LAMS forum on the LAMS Community, read this page and get whatever logs you can. Then post to the forum and we'll try to help you sort out the problem.
If the LAMS Installer comes up with an error and won't run all the way through the install process then re-run the installer and try to get the following details:
Get a copy of the error on the screen. A screenshot fine - just make sure it isn't a huge 8M file!
If you get as far as the "Installing" screen, then click on the "Show Details" button. That will display an error log.
Then before you click "Next" on this screen, you need to do 2 things:
(1) Right mouse click on the detailed log and copy the details to the clipboard. Then go into notepad, paste the log into a file and save
(2) Go to your temp directory (e.g. c:\temp) and look for a file installer.properties. Copy the installer.properties somewhere else. You must copy it now, as it will be deleted when you click the next button.
When you post to the forum, please tell us

If you can't get through to the LAMS login screen at all (for example, JBoss won't start up properly, JBoss will start but the log is full of errors, if you try to LAMS url it just gives Apache Tomcat error messages) then:
So LAMS is installed, you can get to the login screen but something isn't right. Have a look at our general troubleshooting page and if that doesn't help, then report the problem to the forum after reading the Reporting Problems and Creating DEBUG Logs.
