I fyou have this issue after rebooting the server, then you might have a corrupt WCS. If you can't start the service manually and you get an error everytime, I bet you will have to reload the software.
Fella 5 is most likely correct. Try uninstalling the WCS. Then boot the machine and attempt to re-install. Keep your eyes open for any port errors as WCS is picky about which ports are enabled and usable. Make sure that the server itself is not running any applications such as IIS. These lock down available ports as well and can cause crashes similar to those you describe. Next look at the ODBC drivers and make sure they are up to date and all Microsoft patches have been applied. These too have been known to cause the software to crash. If none of these work, make sure to have your error logs folder ready and call TAC. They will be able to evaluate the logs and give you an informed solution to your problem. Licensing would not be the issue as the WCS boots unlicensed but gives you a warning message and information on remediation of the problem.
We have found WCS wasn't running because we had set it up on VM (MS Virtual Server 2005) and given it to low of RAM. That's why Java VM hadn;t worked correctly. Now we have set it up on physical server (which met the system requirements) and WCS is working well.
But now we are trying to force it to work on VM. I'll notify about results.
Make sure you are running the server on a version of VM ware that is supported. Not all versions of OS (ie Linux) are supported. VM Ware has been supported only for a short time some I am sure there are still some issues around it.
