Did you mean that you are starting Tableau from Windows? Here are few things you could check.
1. Check port no. 80 if it is not used by another software? If it is already used, you can use 8000 for example.
2. Check processes from Task manager, if you can see any tableau related processes.
Also you should have Tableau server 9.3 if you want to publish anything from Tableau desktop 9.3.
