Cause

Post Tomcat 8.0.53, when Tomcat is installed as a service, it's installed with Log On as "Local Service". Due to this the service in Tomcat 9 is unable to make changes to files on the file system and ends up with errors.

Environment

Release : Clarity with Jaspersoft 7.8 

Component : Jaspersoft 

Resolution

Command Line Instruction:

  1. Open "services.msc" as an administrator user. Stop the Jaspersoft service if it's running.
  2. Right click on the service that was created for Jasper, and click on properties.
  3. Change the Log on from "Local Service" to "Local System" account.

  4. Click on Apply.
  5. Start the service and now Jaspersoft as service will start
