Hi Gabriel,

Hopefully you've got this sorted by now, however, if not there is a knowledge base article that references the error you're running into titled Incompatible JDK causing stack dump on Windows.  The issue is related to the the JDK being used:

Java version "1.8.0" is in use, which is not supported: Bamboo Supported Platforms, and JAVA_HOME variable is not configured correctly. 

In order to fix the issue:

  1. Stop Bamboo completely
  2. Download and install a compatible SE Development Kit (JDK) from the Oracle website
  3. Set the JAVA_HOME environment variable to point to the root directory of the JDK
  4. Re-start to make the changes effective
  5. Start Bamboo again

Try the above steps and let us know if you're good to go afterwards.  Once you restart Bamboo if you are still unable to start it up and see errors post the errors and we'll go from there.

Cheers,

Branden

Thanks. If I remember correctly, 1.7 worked for me.
