Crystal Server 2013 admin issues after fresh trial install


After a complete default install and trying to run the SAP Crystal Server Central Management Console I get a web page with this data on it:

.NET System.Runtime.Remoting.RemotingException: Tcp channel protocol violation: expecting preamble. at System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.Tcp.TcpSocketHandler.ReadAndMatchPreamble() at System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.Tcp.TcpSocketHandler.ReadVersionAndOperation(UInt16& operation) at System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.Tcp.TcpServerSocketHandler.ReadHeaders() at System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.Tcp.TcpServerTransportSink.ServiceRequest(Object state) at System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.SocketHandler.ProcessRequestNow()

If I try to run http://<servername>:8080 I get a download and the download contains the following text:

.NET h Server encountered an internal error. To get more info turn on customErrors in the server's config file.

The Tomcat Configuration comes up if I Run as Administrator and appears to be configured correctly.

What will fix this?

I installed to Windows Server 2012 R2 with IIS and installed from CRS_2013_SP1_SERVER_COMP_WIN__64B__ directory after extracting the archive

I really wanted to run without having to install Tomcat and subversion and SQL Anywhere it that is possible.
