I downloaded the bitbucket archive from . I exploded it and when I try to run from the bin folder I get the error 

Error: Could not find or load main class com.atlassian.bitbucket.internal.launcher.BitbucketServerLauncher

I see that the classpath is pointing to C:\Users\nitin\atlassian-bitbucket-8.8.2\atlassian-bitbucket-8.8.2\app which contains the class file

Error: Could not find or load main class com.atlassian.bitbucket.internal.launcher.BitbucketServerLauncher.class 

but java is not able to find it.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi Nitin,

Bitbucket Server version 8 is not supported on Windows, which is why this doesn't work.
