I am trying to install Sitecore 9 in my Windows 10 box. At first attempt, it was failed with this exception.

Failed to start service 'Sitecore xConnect Search Indexer'

I got the one answer for this issue here. But it is related to LicenseException in EventLog. But i am having different exception in my EventLog as follows.

The Sitecore XConnect Search Indexer - sc9.xconnect-IndexWorker service terminated with the following error: An exception occurred in the service when handling the control request.

Apart from it, i can also see few Application Level EventLog exceptions listed below..

The Open Procedure for service ".NETFramework" in DLL "C:\windows\system32\mscoree.dll" failed. Performance data for this service will not be available. The first four bytes (DWORD) of the Data section contains the error code.

  • just to make sure: you have all prerequisites installed, solr running via https and service was created but cannot start? can you open xConnect url in browser (you should see just a time string)? – Daniil Feb 14 '18 at 11:44
  • Yes, all are done. When trying to access xConnect url in browser, it gives me error at IIS level. – Arvind Gehlot Feb 14 '18 at 12:18
  • Looks like an issue with performance counters. See if any of these help: admin-enclave.com/en/articles/windows/… – Marco Feb 14 '18 at 17:57

    Do you see any errors in xConnect Indexer log file? – grg Feb 14 '18 at 21:29
  • Just veirfy your license is not expired. In my case i got this error due to my sitecore license was expired. – Akif Irfan Jun 26 '18 at 13:21

I recently got the same error and got it fixed by performing the below steps:

  1. Make sure that my license support Sitecore xConnect. Please contact your Sitecore regional officer to ask about if your license is eligible for xConnect. Normally, they would need to regenerate a new one. If this license was used on Sitecore 8, then you need to ask for a new one for Sitecore 9.

  2. Make sure solr is running on https and the solr service is on.

  3. Once the above is confirmed, I deleted everything and started from scratch. Follow the link you posted to know what to remove.

You can read my post on how to get Sitecore 9 with xConnect. This is what I have used to setup the Sitecore instance.

Once I got the same error while setting up Sitecore 9.0.1 and the cause was a wrong license file in this path.

C:\inetpub\wwwroot\sc90.xconnect\App_data\jobs\continuous\IndexWorker\App_data 

Even though you have the right license.xml file in your

 C:\inetpub\wwwroot\sc90.xconnect\App_data\ 

path, you can still get this error message. So my solution was replacing the license.xml file in previous path, while install.ps1 file working.
