Sitecore On-Premises Free Edition Hangs Sitecore


I went through the process of installing the "On-Premises Free Edition" on my development box. I followed the instructions in order:

  1. Installing Coveo Enterprise Search (CES) On-Premises
  2. Installing CES on the Master Server
  3. Installing Coveo for Sitecore

The versions installed were:

  1. March 2017 release of CES for Sitecore
  2. February 2017 release of the Coveo Search API
  3. Coveo for Sitecore 82 4.0 (1088).zip

I installed into Sitecore 8.2 update 2.

After installation, Sitecore just hangs. Looking at the logs, the last informative message is: Initializing index "Coveomasterindex"… It appears that the "Coveomasterindex" is not able to be initialized. There is no other information available.

Does anyone have any pointers as to what I should look at in trying to get Sitecore to load?

Do you have the WFFM module installed? It could cause Sitecore to freeze at the Coveo index initialization. See this known issue.
