Set FISHEYE_OPTS when running Fisheye 3.9.0 as a service

I followed the instructions on the Fisheye documentation pages to set JAVA_OPTS in the system environment variable FISHEYE_OPTS. I validated with a fresh command prompt that the variable is set system wide. However, when I start Fisheye and look at the System Information on the Admin pages, I see no sign that the Java opts were picked up. These are rather important in our office; unless I tell an app server where the proxy server and which hosts to ignore going there, EVERY byte of traffic circles through the dang proxy server and kills the application performance.

Any thoughts on how I tell IF the opts were loaded and, if not, how to get them to go in?

Just to clarify, is FishEye running on a Windows or Linux server?

It is indeed on Windoze... Server 2012. I've validated that the general OS can see the contents of that variable

I have reasons for running my Atlassian stack on windows. Some of them good ones...

Since FishEye is running as a Windows service, the Java flags will need to be configured in the service, not as environment variables. The service can be configured under Start > All Programs > FishEye > Configure FishEye. Under the Java tab, add the proxy flags to the Java Options section, each on their own line. After this, restart the service and you should see the options picked up under the System Information page.

More information at JVM system properties

Jeff, Perhaps there is a bug when it is running on Server 2012. Whether I run that as an administrator or not, a window will flash and then disappear.
