- Platform information:
- Hardware: Intel i7 10th GEN processor / 16GB RAM / 221GB storage
- OS: 64 bit Operating System. Windows 10 Version 1909
- Java Runtime Environment: Java 14.0.1
- openHAB version: 2.5.5
- Issue of the topic: I tried to open openhab for the first time and when I ran start.bat it said “Error occurred while checking the system module” I tried opening it from both file explorer and command prompt and it didn’t work. I created the JAVA_HOME system variable and made sure to save my openhab download on the C drive in the openHAB2 folder.
From command line try
C:\openHAB2\start.bat and not changing to the openhab2 directory first.
Just a guess though as I have never installed OH on Windows.
I downloaded a different version of Java (Java 8) and changed the JAVA_HOME system variable to that and now its working
Ahh, I see in OP that you were using java 14. I should have noticed that and pointed you to the doc’s that mention to use Java 8.
Glad you got it working.
