OH 2.5.5 on Windows

Dear folks,

I tried to install openHAB 2.5.5 on my windows machine. Surprisingly after installing Zulu 32 bit Java 1.8.x I wanted to start the start.bat file and got this error messages:

PS C:\Users…\openhab-255> .\start.bat
Launching the openHAB runtime…
WARNING: Running Karaf on a Java HotSpot Client VM because server-mode is not available.
Install Java Developer Kit to fix this.
For more details see http://java.sun.com/products/hotspot/whitepaper.html#client
Das System kann den angegebenen Pfad nicht finden.
PS C:\Users…\openhab-255> java -version
openjdk version “1.8.0_252”
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (Zulu 8.46.0.19-CA-win32) (build 1.8.0_252-b14)
OpenJDK Client VM (Zulu 8.46.0.19-CA-win32) (build 25.252-b14, mixed mode)

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Best regards,
Jochen

So you installed JRE the runtime environment instead of JDK the developer environment.
Install the correct Java package.

What is the full path of this folder ? Does it include at least one space ?

Comment; I just ignore the HotSpot warning, to no ill effect. (Using Oracle java on Win)
