Windows service not starting with 7.3 (Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012)

There is a known issue on some installations of Yellowfin 7.3

This issues however is easily resolved:

Using the administrator command prompt - navigate to [yellowfin]/appserver/bin

1. remove the yellowfin service.

        service remove yellowfin

2. re-add the service

        service install yellowfin

3. start the service

        service start yellowfin

once started, you can confirm if the service is running by checking 

        http://[server]:[port]/info.jsp

if this page returns, try logging in

This issue is due to security changes within Windows - we hope to have this resolved in a future Yellowfin version.
