In a Windows Environment
When the installation is complete, you can also verify its success by checking for a new DescriptiveAnalytics directory on your host computer at the location chosen during installation.
To verify that the necessary service is running properly, use the Administrative Tools that Windows provides to view services running locally on your computer. Your path to view these services will vary based on your version of the Windows operating system. (Example: Administrative Tools > Services)
Ideally, the twpas-descriptive-analytics-service is listed with a Status of Running (see the image below). If the service is Paused or shows an empty status, see Troubleshooting a Platform Analytics Installation.
