Incorrect lockout recovery instructions for Bitbucket

After banging my head off the desk for multiple hours I finally figured out that the instructions here are slightly incorrect.  

The file needs to be edited to add set in front of the argument or the bitbucket will fail to launch after the modification. 

set "JVM_SUPPORT_RECOMMENDED_ARGS=-Datlassian.recovery.password=temporarypassword"

 The feedback button doesn't work at the bottom of the screen either so this was the only way I could figure out to let anyone know.

Hi Brandon,

There should already be a line in the setenv.bat file for this environment variable, and as the article explains, you need to add the value to the line rather than putting the whole line there:

rem Occasionally Atlassian Support may recommend that you set some specific JVM arguments. You can use this variable
rem below to do that.

But anyway, I'll add some clarifications on what the line should look like on Windows.
