Hello @sai pokala, Welcome to Atlassian Community!

As per your description, it appears you are missing a space between "Program" and "Files" on both JAVA_HOME and JRE_HOME environment variables values.

C:\Program Files\Bamboo>echo %JAVA_HOME%
C:\ProgramFiles\Java\jdk-18.0.2.1\bin

C:\Program Files\Bamboo>echo %JRE_HOME%
C:\ProgramFiles\Java\jre1.8.0_341\bin

Alternatively, you can use "C:\PROGRA~1" to avoid spaces.

Please fix that and try again.

JAVA_HOME "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-18.0.2.1\bin" contains spaces. Please change to a location without spaces if this causes problems.

Hello @sai pokala

Use:

JAVA_HOME=C:\PROGRA~1\Java\jdk-18.0.2.1
JRE_HOME=C:\PROGRA~1\Java\jre1.8.0_341

Or move the location to a place folder without spaces.

Hello @sai pokala 

Please do not use \bin on the environment variables:

Use:

JAVA_HOME=C:\PROGRA~1\Java\jdk-18.0.2.1
JRE_HOME=C:\PROGRA~1\Java\jre1.8.0_341

If that doesn't work, we advise you to open a ticket with Atlassian in case you have a valid support entitlement.

C:\Program Files\Bamboo>echo %JAVA_HOME%
C:\oracle\Java\jdk-18.0.2.1

C:\Program Files\Bamboo>echo %JRE_HOME%
C:\oracle\Java\jre1.8.0_341
