bamboo agent install or start up ignores -Dbamboo.home parameter

I Am running AWS Elastic Windows agents and am trying to create a base AMI with a different build working directory, but everything i do seems to just be ignored and the agent will start with the default directory. any help would be greatly appreciated. 

The start up script calls, 

"%JAVA_HOME%/bin/java" -Dbamboo.home=C:\build-dir -Dimagefiles.version=6.5-SNAPSHOT -jar C:\opt\bamboo-elastic-agent\bin\atlassian-bamboo-agent-elastic-installer.jar >>bamboo-elastic-agent.out 2>&1

when the agent connects the working directory is C:\Users\Bamboo\bamboo-agent-home\xml-data\build-dir

I don't have any experience with Elastic agents but let me try to help.

Are you running the agent as a Windows service? In that case the java options need to be specified in the service configuration.

Or the easiest way to run an agent as windows service is by using the wrapper script (bin/wrapper.exe) and to use the conf/wrapper.conf file set the java options.
There is a command to install an agent as a windows service. See this article (last topic). This will add the java properties to the .conf file.
