Migrating Bamboo on Windows from Oracle to OpenJDK starts interactively but not as windows service

There are many related links on this topic. The rest of my stack is on Linux, but I have a Windows build server. I have confirmed the following

local service account

OS (2016), JVM (OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM AdoptOpenJDK) and Application are 64bit

JAVA_HOME points to JDK root (not bin or jre)

This is a new host with only 64bit Java 8 update 192 installed and service account has login rights

The only log I get is in commons-daemon with the familiar:

%1 is not a valid Win32 application.
Failed creating Java C:\Program Files\AdoptOpenJDK\jdk8u192-b12\jre\bin\server\jvm.dll

I've also remove user path definition (as this has been a problem with remote agents in the past, but that has quite a different error log)

Hi @v8lust,

The issue you have commented may be related to service does not start on Windows with 64-bit Java, in which provides you with a suggestion on how to move forward (in comments section)

Kind regards,


Greatly appreciated. For now I shall leave it running in a disconnected remote desktop session until Atlassian deliver a product level solution for this.

Is there any word on a fix for this in latest Bamboo (6.9+)?

no, same problem in Windows 6.9.1
