after installation , when i try to launch bamboo through cmd "bin\start-bamboo.bat" im getting error

JAVA_HOME "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_333" 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

Using CATALINA_BASE: "C:\Program Files\Bamboo"
Using CATALINA_HOME: "C:\Program Files\Bamboo"
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: "C:\Program Files\Bamboo\temp"

Hello @pravinkumar Sarkate, Welcome to Atlassian Community!

As recommended in the Bamboo installation guide:

It is highly recommended to avoid placing the Bamboo home directory in any Windows security controlled directory, for example, C:\Program Files.

You have two options to get this sorted.

  1. Move your JAVA_HOME and also any Bamboo folders to a location without spaces. You would probably have to install a new version in a new location. THIS IS THE #1 RECOMMENDATION
  2. Find the Windows short name for each location and replace it on every configuration file and also on Windows environment variables:
    1. Find the short name. Run on cmd.exe:
    2. cmd /c for %A in ("C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_333") do @echo %~sA
    3. Replace the JAVA_HOME variable on Windows system properties -> Advanced -> Environment Variables with the short name
    4. You might have to repeat the steps above for each variable Bamboo has that contains spaces
