Remove JAVA_HOME cause Bamboo does not support JDK 11. Supported platforms

Set JRE_HOME to be "C:\Java\jre-8u191" without the "bin".


System variables:

JAVA_HOME: C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-\bin
JRE_HOME: C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_341\bin


C:\Program Files\Bamboo>java -version
java version "" 2022-08-18
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build, mixed mode, sharing)


C:\Program Files\Bamboo>echo %JAVA_HOME%

C:\Program Files\Bamboo>echo %JRE_HOME%



getting below error

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

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

Bamboo Data Center
Version : 8.2.5

If you encounter issues starting or stopping Bamboo Server, please see the Troubleshooting guide at
