Looks like the old Windows service didn't get removed. Is there still a bin directory in the installation directory? If so you could try navigate to it in cmd and run

tomcat.exe //DS/JIRA280413204222

If so, you can delete them referring here.

Thanks for response. I get this when I run the command:

C:\Program Files\Atlassian\JIRA\bin>tomcat6.exe //DS/JIRA020513194703

The specified service does not exist as an installed service.

Unable to delete 'JIRA020513194703' service

C:\Program Files\Atlassian\JIRA\bin>

Remove and reinstall the service seems the best option for this case.

service.bat remove JIRA280413204222

Cheers

Thanks for the response. Tried all service.bat remove did not work.

Here is what I get when I run the command:

==========================================

C:\Program Files\Atlassian\JIRA\bin>service.bat remove JIRA020513194703

The specified service does not exist as an installed service.

Unable to delete 'JIRA020513194703' serviceThe service 'JIRA020513194703' has be

en removed

==============================================

Here is what I did

  1. Installed JIRA5.1.6
  2. Uninstalled using uninstall option from start->JIRA menu
  3. Installed JIRA5.1.6 again
    1. Installation was successful, when it tried to lauch jira after I clcik on Finish button on install success page, it launched google chrome : localhost:8080. Got

      Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to localhost:8080

Hi Abe,

It seems that the service was not removed during the uninstallation. How was the uninstallation performed?

Perhaps you could check via the Control Panel -> Services option to check the exact service name and path

ok finally found solution

This is the only thing worked for me:

C:\Windows\system32>sc delete JIRA091212124017

[SC] DeleteService SUCCESS

You have to open cmd window like this:

To enable the default Administrator account, perform the steps below:

1. Click Start and type CMD in the Start search box

2. Right click on CMD in the list and click on "Run as administrator"

3. Type the following command: net user administrator /active:yes

Hopefully someone finds it useful...
