I'm using Jira 4.2.4 (have to as I'm replicating an existing setup for a client who's using this).
I installed Jira on Windows 7 today (not as a service), ran with no problem. Since I had to install a plugin I stopped Jira it from the start menu and started it again from the start menu.
It won't start since "Unable to create lock file for jira.home directory 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Atlassian\Application Data\JIRA'.
I tried running the script the shortcut points to as an administrator, won't run at all. I gave the shortcut full permissions, disabled access control. No joy.
BTW, there's no lock file in that location.
