RMS Configuration program won't launch

I am working (remotely) with a customer to install RMS. We ran the installation software (with no errors), but for some reason when I open up the RMS Configuration Wizard it crashes. I checked the windows error log and found the following error:

Faulting application RMSConfigurationwizard.exe, version, time stamp 0x4a8ec813, faulting module ntdll.dll, version 6.0.6002.18005, etc...

I have attempted reinstallation and rebooted the machine a couple times. Any ideas?

Here is some more info:
Machine type: Virtual server
OS: Windows server 2008 sp2 standard edition.
2 Gigs of RAM
IIS 7.0
.NET 3.5 + ASP.NET 2.0.50727 framework
SQL Express 2008
I am connected to the server via a Remote desktop session.
Windows firewall is off
Both SQL and RMS are being installed on the D:\ drive
Customer says we have full admin rights to windows.

    is your problem solved already (hopefully it is as this thread was started two months ago...)? I have a document from AMX which helps in configuring the Windows Server 2008 features to run RMS configuration wizard correctly (I assume your problem is/was related to server 2008).

    I am having this very same problem. Did you find a solution?

    I had to go into the AMX RMS folder and manually run the various services. AMX also made a piece of code that will monitor the RMS and restart any apps that drop offline.

    Contact tech support. There are a number of Server Features on Windows Server 2008 that have to be enabled which are not listed in the "Installation Checklist" document.

    PS - I had the same issue until I spoke with them.

    To complete the Necromancy.....

    First ....
    • Make sure Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 has been installed along with all updates.
    • RMS needs a static IP either by address reservation or direct assignment.
    • Setup Firewall to allow port 3839 (RMS Default)

    This is probably where it is falling down, some IIS component missing..
    • Open the Server Manager
    • Scroll down to the Roles Manager section and follow the Add Roles Link.
    • Click the Application Server Check box
    • Click the Add Requires Features Button to accept.
    • Hit Next Twice
    • Check the Web Server (IIS) Support Check box
    • Add the required Role Services and Features for the Web Server (IIS) Support Role.
    • Click the Add Requires Role Services Button to accept.

    And now, yet another wizard will start....
    • The Add Roles Wizard Window will open.
    • Select the COM+ Network Access Check box
    • Ensure that the HTTP Activation Check box is also selected.
    • Click the Next Button to continue.
    • Click the Next Button to continue on the Web Server (IIS) Introduction Page
    • Check the ASP Check box in the Application Development Section
    • Scroll down and ensure that all of the check boxes in the Security section are selected.
    • Select the IIS 6 Management Compatibility Check box and all of the Check boxes in this section
    • Click the Next Button to continue.
    • Click the Install Button to begin the Installation

    That should be all the pre-req's as far as the server side stuff goes, after you complete the addition of those roles and components you can install SQL on that server if it isn't on a separate server, and then away you go.

    And now we shall let the dead thread rest in pieces.
