Just starting out. I am a complete novice, especially to the use of software. I am trying to install openHAB on my laptop which is running Windows 7. Using the Installation guide for Windows I have got to item 3. When I try to start the server by entering C:\openHAB2\start.bat, the screen shown (or I think it is because it disappears so fast!) momentarily appears on the screen and then nothing happens. I’ve waited for something to appear but nothing! Any advice on what I am doing wrong or what I should do? I couldn’t see a similar topic discussed here recently.
I’m going to walk away from it for a while and come back to it later. The path for Java on my PC seems very long compared to what is being shown. [ C;\Program Files(x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_171\bin\javaw.exe ] I’ve tried shortened combinations of the path and I still get the same effect.
