hmmm i have always been able to run that without any probs even on a new system ... make sure your java_home is set ... the rest should be ok ..
mind pasting your env here? (btw .. i don't use jboss on windows ....so can only help on unix related machines)
running red hat enterprise 2.1, java_home is set to the j2sdk "/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2", so I'm missing somthing what about class path? any ideas.
It seems like something is wrong because at least the JBoss 3.2.3 run.sh fragment is as:
runjar="$JBOSS_HOME/bin/run.jar" if [ ! -f $runjar ]; then die "Missing required file: $runjar" fi JBOSS_BOOT_CLASSPATH="$runjar"
So it is somewhat of a mystery how "Missing required file ../run.jar" could be produced as an error message. Please check your run.sh file and trace through the shell script.
on my machines .. i have a dedicated user something like 'jboss' who executes the ./run.sh ....
look out for JBOSS_HOME when the script starts .. where does it points to ?
