Why won't ColdFusion 11 add-on services stay started?

I have a clean installation of ColdFusion 11 on a Windows 2012 R2 VM. CF has been up and running w/o issue for about 2 weeks. Used basic default directories.

Today I d/l'ed and installed the add-on services, using default directories again.

When I try starting the add on services in the Windows service applet, however, they start up...but immediately stop. I.e., the service supposedly starts up--quite quickly...suspiciously quickly, actually--but as soon as I refresh the display of service, I can see they're not running again.

I've looked through the install log for the add-on services and all looks good, i.e., "successful."

Any suggestions on where to look next for this problem? Some particular log files or something like that?
