Bamboo startup fails

This week I installed Bamboo on Windows for the first time. I was able to get the server working from the command line running on my own desktop. However, when I set up a Windows Scheduler task to start up the server, using a service account, it no longer starts up. Instead of a dashboard, I get the following bootstrap error:

Bamboo bootstrap failed: Could not make directory/ies: C:\Users\tisaac\bamboo-home

The user name under which the scheduler task is running is devservice, not tisaac. So I uninstalled and reinstalled, specifying C:\Users\Public\bamboo-home as the home directory. This worked, in the sense that the directory was created when I started up the task. However, when I navigate to localhost:8085, I get the same bootstrap error page as before, but with no new errors displayed.

Following is the log:

Hi Tony,

Is there any reason you're trying to start Bamboo from the Windows Scheduler? Have you tried configuring Bamboo to run as a Windows Service instead? We've got documentation on that at https://confluence.atlassian.com/bamboo/running-bamboo-as-a-windows-service-289277308.html and I'm fairly confident that this is the better way to go.

Cheers,

Christian

Thank you! Yes, this is exactly what I want. There was nothing in the "Getting Started" guide that referenced this possibility.
