Install stardog studio on windows

Please, How can I install stardog studio on windows 7. Already I installed the Stardog+Studio-latest+Installer and I can open the user interface but i cannot do anything like executing sparql query. When i click on connect i get a notification to check the server etc...
So please, there is any documentation or clear step to install stardog on windows

As soon as you get Stardog squared away you should be able to start using Studio. See my latest reply to your other thread and I think you'll be there shortly.

In the other question, i tried to install on a linux server. In this post i tried to install on my local windows PC.

Are you looking to run everything on the Windows machine or are you looking to run Studio on your Windows machine and Stardog on your Linux server?

I want to run two instances differents of stardog.
1- I want to run studio on my windows machine (with i startdog also must be on my machine)
2- and, startdog on my linux server.

So, both are completely separate.

Windows installation instructions are here

After executing

C:\stardog-7.3.0\bin> .\install-service.bat

I get the following

AMD64 Architecture detected

The following parameters will be set for the service

Stardog installation directory is C:\stardog-7.3.0
STARDOG_HOME is C:\stardogDB
Stardog server will use 2048 MB
Server logs will be written to C:\stardog-7.3.0\logs

Installing Service "Stardog Server"

Successfully installed "Stardog Server"

Then after executing

C:\stardog-7.3.0\bin>stardog-admin server start
I get
WARNING: An illegal reflective access operation has occurred

lectUtils$2 (file:/C:/stardog-7.3.0/client/api/guice-4.0.jar) to method java.lan

I go to the services in windows, i see Stardog-Server, when i tried to start it manually I get
a popup including a message as Windows could not start the startdog on the local computer.For more event go the log, etc

In log under startdog i can see the follows

So please what should i do

What version of Java are you running?

I delete my java version which was java 12.0.2 and I installed OpenJDK.
So when I run stardog-admin server start
I get the following

C:\stardog-7.3.0\bin>stardog-admin server start
A valid Stardog license was not found. Please download a trial license or visit for more information.

my new baby steps to run startdog.

  1. How can I solve the startdog valid licence
  2. Does also i need to install stardog studio or not?
    3- Does also i need to install docker?

Good to know. It should have noticed that you didn't have a license and prompted you through the process of getting one. You can do it manually by running

stardog-admin license request


C:\stardog-7.3.0\bin>stardog-admin license request
Illegal char <"> at index 0: "C:\stardog-7.3.0"\stardog-license-key.bin

I have windows 7 professional, do you think is this the problem
Does i need windows sever

By the way, if I go to windows services I can start the stardog server manually and then if a go to stardog studio i press connect, stardog tell me the server is down

No need for Windows server. It looks like there’s some problem with the license request. It’s in beta so the feedback is appreciated and I’m sure it will be fixed up shortly.

I want you to know that I'm downloading a copy of windows, and I haven't run windows since Vista, and it's all just for you :slight_smile: but I'm not installing it bare metal. It will be confined to a lonely under provisioned VM where it belongs.

The problem is you don't have STARDOG_HOME set when you're running the stardog-admin.bat license request command.

run set STARDOG_HOME=c:\stardog-7.3.0 and it should work.

Thanks again. This command was done in the first step. I finally run stardog on windows but I can tell you that stardog windows has a security problem.

Can you provide details on the security problems you’ve identified?
