BI Server: sawserver.exe has stopped working in OBIEE 12c

I have a OBIEE 12c installation in Windows Server 2102 R2 (but i think this solution is valid for any windows installation). Installation process was successful and everything works perfectly, but randomly the nqsserver.exe crashes:


While checking BI Services I can see that OBIS and OBIPS Services are in shutdown state and when I try to start it again I keep getting different errors, like “nqsserver.exe has stopped working”:



This issue is caused by another Weblogic installation in my server and is related to Weblogic that is unable to locate to Wbem files. To solve this problem you can edit the “start.cmd” file located at the path:


Line which you need to add for Wbem:

set PATH=C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\javapath;%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem

Start.cmd should look lke below:error4.png

Restart all BI Services and all will work perfectly!
