mahesh sathe August 6, 2019

JAVA_HOME  ( It is set in system variable)

C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-11.0.4\bin

When i run below command , its showing JAVA-HOME path error



C:\Program Files\Bamboo\bin>start-bamboo.bat

To run Bamboo in the foreground, start the server with start-bamboo.bat /fg

Bamboo Server Edition
Version : 6.9.2

JAVA_HOME "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-11.0.4\bin" contains spaces. Please change to a location without spaces if this causes problems.

If you encounter issues starting or stopping Bamboo Server, please see the Troubleshooting guide at https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BAMBOO/Installing+Bamboo+on+Windows

The JRE_HOME environment variable is not defined correctly
This environment variable is needed to run this program

Hi @mahesh sathe,

Bamboo 6.9.2 is not compatible with Java 11, please point you JAVA_HOME environment variable to a valid JDK 1.8 installation and try to start Bamboo again.

Please remember that if the path for the JDK installation contains spaces, you'll need to use the shortened pathname, for example:

Progra~1 = 'Program Files' 

For more details, please take a look at the following documentation:
