Hello Yuval,

What version of Bamboo do you have installed? if version 5.1 or newer, please make sure to use the *.bat file located under bin directory:


Please right click and run as administrator if the problem persists.

You can also use the "BambooConsole.bat" file.

If you continue receiving the error and still can't access Bamboo at: "http://localhost:8085", please open a ticket in our support site "" and attach your Bamboo log files from under <bamboo-home>/logs to the ticket.

Hope this helps!
