i don't run jboss under windows - but you should have a log file.
try looking for a server.log and boot.log file in your
you may wish to review and or post any error messages that are showing up in these two logs
What is JAVA_HOME set to? Make sure it is set to a 1.5 JDK. Also, where did you install the JDK? Hopefully not in "Program Files".
See the discussion at http://www.jboss.com/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=96582
" run -b <your ip address>" from your console
e.g. run -b 188.8.131.52
It binds JBoss Server with your IP.
Thanks for all of your advices and suggestions, but I was able to solve the problem. I had to set the JAVA_HOME-variable to JDK 1.6, the system's default. I had tried before with JAVA_HOME set to 1.5, because everybody said, that JBoss under 1.6 isn't tested, but see above that doesn't work if your system's default is set to another JDK.
P.S.: PeterJ: Thank god, I'm running a German Windows, where "Program Files" is localized to "Programme" - No whitespace-issues in pathnames ;)!
