Crowd not looking at JAVA_HOME

Have spent all morning trying to figure this out. I installed the latest JDK for Crowd to use based on a recommendation by Atlassian support, but no matter what I put in JAVA_HOME, Java Version still reads 1.6.0. Is there a config file somewhere that I could change to point Crowd to the right JAVA_HOME path?

You also need to make sure JAVA_HOME is in your PATH environment.

Generally, in the environement variable dialog, you would set JAVA_HOME to something, then prepend this to the PATH environment


This adds java's bin directory to the system PATH
