      Tell me exactly what is problem? You can try following things to solve the problem.
      1)Thingsboard runs on port 8080.if anything running on port 8080 then thingsboard will not start. You need to install thingsboard on different port (see step 4 mentioned above) or stop the service which is running on port 8080.
      2) Open command prompt in administration mode to start service
