I am trying to load an .mpk file onto the map by using a LocalMapService, but I am unable to start the LocalMapService (I get an error that says "Local server install path is not valid"). From what I have been able to find, this is because I am missing the Esri.ArcGISRuntime.Toolkit which has not yet been released for Esri.ArcGISRuntime v.100. Is that correct?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thank your for your help. I was not aware that the LocalServer had to be installed seperately. I can now get an instance of the LocalServer and attempt to start it. Unfortunately this results in an exception with the message "Server process exited unexpectedly during startup". Any idea what causes this?
We separated the local server install from the SDK to keep the basic download/install smoother.
Sounds like something goes really awry. Can you post your code that you are using?
Yes of course, here it is. (log is a Log4Net instance for printing debug messages). The runtime environment has been initialized before this code is executed.
ls = LocalServer.Instance;
ls.AppDataPath = @"C:\Users\jsc\Documents\ArcGIS";
log.Debug("LocalServer status: " + ls.Status.ToString());
lms = new LocalMapService(@"C:\Users\jsc\Documents\ArcGIS\Test1.mpk");
log.Debug("Local Map Service Url: " + lms.Url);
log.Debug("Failed to start local map service: " + exc.Message);
Yes, that is correct. ls.StartAsync() causes the exception. Setting AppDataPath to "C:\Users\jsc\AppData\Local\Temp" or not setting it at all yields the same result.
Could you provide about information about the configuration that you are using?
- operation system version
- can you enable logging for the local server (install path/localserver100.0/32/bin/LocalServerUtility.exe) and see what is written to the log
Thank you for that tip. It seems to have something to do with my license (although I don't know what the solution is yet). My application is built for x86, and I am running a 64 bit Windows 10. The log from LocalServerUtility looks like this:

OK, It seems that I have the answer. In my application I have entered a license key belonging to a Basic License, and that prevented my from starting the LocalServer. I have currently removed the license key and the application is now running on a developer license - that enabled me to start the LocalServer.
We are currently looking into upgrading our license, but until then I will continue to use the developer license while testing the LocalServer. Thankyou for your help!
P.S.: An exception message more informative than "Server process exited unexpectedly during startup" would have been helpful :)
