Greetings

On my test bed (windows 7 - 64 bit)

I have JDK 1.8.0_111

MySQL 5.6.33

and installed JIRA 7.2.5  (using atlassian-jira-software-7.2.5-x64.exe).

it won't start up,

this is what I see in commons-daemon.2016-11-23.log:

Dave from Atlassian support suggested this Link (Thanks):

this KB for more details   (https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirakb/jira-service-fails-to-start-in-windows-is-not-a-valid-win32-application-313463797.html)

Problem fixed by removing JRE_HOME environment viraiable, then starting new command prompt, then removing the service (using service.bat remove) then re-adding it back (service.bat install).

regards
