Issues have been reported with Continuum not starting after a fresh installation, and/or errors popping up when starting Continuum.
Installation with anti-virus software and/or firewalls enabled
There are many different anti-virus programs on the market and they all work a bit different. If the windows firewall is enabled it may block services within Continuum which does not allow it to start correctly.
- Disable any anti-virus programs and disable the Windows firewall while installing Continuum.
- After installation, enable the anti-virus programs and firewalls if necessary.
- If using the firewall built into Windows XP, go to the exceptions tab of the firewall editor and add services that are not starting to the exception list.
