Cisco Wireless Control Station 6.0.196.0 does not start…

In the recent days I’ve had problems with our install of Cisco Wireless Control Station v6.0.196.0. After a system restart, the service did not start and no apparent reasons where given to the user.

The Cisco support wasn’t of much help too, as apparently did not encounter the error before.

Whenever I tried to start the WCS via the batch file the result was an error:

Java Virtual Machine Launcher: Could not find the main class: com.zerog.lax.LAX .

In fact all the batch files associated with the control functions of the WCS (START SERVER / STOP SERVER / DATABASE BACKUP / RESTORE) presented the same error when started.

Also trying to start the WCS service, via the computer management console, did not helped as the service terminated unexpectedly (error 1067).
