New Install on Win10 help needed

  • Platform information:
    • Hardware: Intel i7 16GB 2T
    • OS: Win10 home 1803
    • Java Oracle 1.8.0_181-b13 and Zulu
    • openHAB version: 2.3.0
      Installed on Windows 10 using Chocolatey:
      Chocolatey put Folders and Files here:
      C:ProgramData\chocolatey\ bin,config,helpers,lib,logs,redirects,tools, …
      http://1992.168.0.XX:8080 "Welcome to openHab2 - Initial setup open ok
      Paper UI opens ok
      I hope to use Mios Binding to connect to my Vera Plus.
      Don’t know how to do that yet partially due to these questions:

Do I do the Windows Service Installation Steps?
One(1) thru six(6) called out in the Installation Guide
And Connecting to the openHAB console in the Installation Guide using Client.bat or SSH

Note: I’m thinking if I do the Directories will not match up because of Chocolatey install ?
Now I wish I had manually installed, they Installation Guide is clearer.
Should I have included logs?

  • If logs where generated please post these here using code fences:

No, Chocolatey did all the Windows install steps for you. You can jump straight to configuring OH, particularly since you have the “Welcome to openHAB2” message successfully shown in the browser. However, you can easily test this. Restart Windows and if OH comes back up you are good to go.

Try it with Client.bat. If that doesn’t work you will need to use SSH. I suspect Client.bat won’t work until you install something like Putty anyway. I don’t run on Windows so can’t say for sure.

You will need to replace C:\openHAB2 with C:\ProgramData\chocolatey\bin\openHAB2 or wherever it appears under there as the root folder. Under there you will find bin, conf, and userdata folders I think.

Thanks for the help!
