I have installed and uninstalled 3 times to no avail. I know I am using the correct user/pass but when I click "login" it just sits. No error message, no "incorrect password" message or anything of the sort. It just doesn't do anything.
I have followed everything I could find on how to install and it doesn't seem too complicated, but something isn't working and my googling isn't finding anyone else with this issue. It's possible that it's not working because I do not have CF installed in this VM, but my plan was to keep the API manager on it's own server. I haven't seen anything that says it needs to be on the same VM, but I don't know what else it could be.
I am running Windows Server 2016.
Can you please go to this location C:\ColdFusion2016APIManager\conf and open the password.properties and add a new password under adminpassword= and restart API Manager.
Try to login again.
I had tried this on an earlier attempt to no avail, but since you suggested it I tried it again. I'm getting the same behavior, though. It doesn't do anything after clicking the button.
Also, I did not install it in the default directory. I set up a folder at D:\APIManager to install into. I don't think this should make a difference, but since you specified the folder location I thought I should include it.
Could you please try with a different browser other than IE.
That's what did it. I am able to log in using Chrome instead of IE, though the docs do say that any modern browser including IE will work.
Just out of curiosity, use Developer Tools (F12 in IE or FF) and click "Login" to see if there are any error messages that appear in Console or Network tabs.

I tried looking at the console. No error messages or warnings. It just doesn't do anything.
