Diagnosing the problem
Look for errors stating that the Deployment Engine failed to initialize.
Resolving the problem
If another installation is running, wait for that installation to complete before attempting to install again. If there are no other installations running, and you still encounter this problem, check the log files in the Deployment Engine logs directory and delete any lock files that exist.
