Jira as service failing to run

I am trying to get JIRA(server) to run as a windows service on startup or the server. I followed the instructions at in order to set it up as a service. The service now shows up in windows services but when attempting to run it we get the error "The JIRA service terminated with the following service-specific error:
Incorrect function." Starting the service manually by running start-jira.bat still works.
