There might be some incorrect syntax while configuring the HOME directory trough jira.application.properties. You might want to try configuring it trough <jira_install_dir>/bin/config.bat and see if it helps.
If it still does'not help, you might want to provide more information such as what the exact error message and whether you are able to access JIRA trough web browser or not, if its not possible to access it trough web browser, let us know the message thrown by your browser.
Hope it helps.
I do not have a config.bat as this is a WAR installation.
I have attempted multiple ways to get it working:
1. Added the environment variable JIRA_HOME; Tells me it is not configured.
2. Added the value jira.home = D:\\JIRA\\HOME to jira-application.properties; Tomcat returns a 404
3. Changed jira.home = "D:\\JIRA\\HOME"; jira cannot start, tells me the home path must be absolute.
2. Changed the value jira.home = D:/JIRA/HOME; Tomcat returns a 404
3. Changed jira.home = "D:/JIRA/HOME"; jira cannot start, tells me the home path must be absolute.
Your first point 2 is the correct format - jira.home = D:\\JIRA\\HOME (double slashes, no quotes)
I would check that your server actually has that directory (case sensitive as well) and that the user that Jira is running as has permissions to at the very least read and write that directory and everything below it.
If all of that is fine, then I'd start reading your log file from the last startup attempt.
Thank you, It is not building properly but is gives me an error in the log:

That's good, but the log is telling you what's wrong now - it's out of memory for "PermGen"
As a Belgian, beer-lover and home brewer, beer is one of my great passions. I love the fact that with just a few ingredients (usually just water, hop and malt) you can create so many different tastes...
