Can't start Bamboo as a Windows service

Hi

I have installed Bambo via InstallAsAService with administrator permissions and gave the server user all the neccessary folder permissions (install and data). All worked fine but I can't start the service because it fails immediately.

bamboo.stderr.2014-03-18.txt says:

2014-03-18 09:09:48 Commons Daemon procrun stderr initialized

commons-deamon.2014-03-18.txt says:

Bamboo is running well when I start it via console.

Thanks for your help!

Ok. It works. I found this article

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/STASHKB/Stash+service+%2864-bit%29+fails+to+start+-+not+a+valid+Win32+application

and tried to place the tomcat7.dll.x64 and the tcnative-1.dll.x64 from an stash zip package and renamed it. These two files beeing not deployed by the Bamboo installer!!! Now the service starts up!

I have the same issue

I got it running. I had to alter the service installer batch script to get it to run.

In service.bat i changed line 136 to read:

set "PR_JVM=%JAVA_HOME%\jre\bin\server\jvm.dll"

I think my JAVA_HOME, aka jdk install, is 64 bit, but my jre install is 32 bit. The odd thing is that the comment for the line i changed mentioned it was using JAVA_HOME when it was instead using the JRE_HOME variable. It seems to me either the comment in there is wrong or the line itself is wrong.

Seems not to help in my case. %JRE_HOME% is prefilled correctly.
