Hi all,

Open up RegEdit and browse to the service.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Apache Software Foundation\Procrun 2.0\Crowd\Parameters\Java

Under the Jvm REG_SZ, there is a reference to C:\Progra~1\Java\..., replace with the full path. C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\...

This worked for me

 

(Sorry, old thread, but even today still getting this result in Google search, so figured I'd add my 2cents)

 

Thanks,
Jared.

By the look of that error it could be because of spaces in the PATH. i.e. C:\Program Files

As a tip when working with Windows Servers and Java tools (and most tools in general) NEVER EVER install things in directories with spaces. e.g. never in C:\Program Files

Unless the developers have been ultra careful with their .bat files you'll run into endless issues like this.

You shoud be able to, but you need to swap out the tomcat6.exe and tomcat6w.exe (which are 32bit) with the 64bit ones. You can download these from Apache Tomcat website

hi,

i have installed 32 bit jdk ,but the issue still persists.

i see this in the tomcat log file:

Are you using a 64bit JVM? I think the tomcat service files in crowd are by default the 32bit ones.

Check this link out for info. It might help
