Can not reset the admin password

I followed the steps here by Jonathan Siberry Dec 17, 2018 • edited

but can not access the admin account. 

Below is the result after we run the command line:

C:\Windows\system32>cd C:\Program Files\Atlassian\Confluence\bin

C:\Program Files\Atlassian\Confluence\bin>start-confluence

To run Confluence in the foreground, start the server with start-confluence.bat /fg
7 週二./1./2_18.27.12
If you encounter issues starting up Confluence, please see the Installation guide at
"Using Java: C:\openjdk-\bin\java.exe"
Error: Unable to access jarfile C:\Program
Error: Unable to access jarfile C:\Program
Using CATALINA_BASE:   "C:\Program Files\Atlassian\Confluence"
Using CATALINA_HOME:   "C:\Program Files\Atlassian\Confluence"
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: "C:\Program Files\Atlassian\Confluence\temp"
Using JRE_HOME:        "C:\openjdk-"
Using CLASSPATH:       "C:\Program Files\Atlassian\Confluence\bin\bootstrap.jar;C:\Program Files\Atlassian\Confluence\bin\tomcat-juli.jar"
C:\Program Files\Atlassian\Confluence\bin>

Can you help us to get our access to admin? Thanx a lot!

Double check your Java installation and Java_Home variable just to make sure that confluence can access Java.
