Startup problem

I just downloaded and installed the Windows runtime. When I start Command Prompt and run start.bat, I get the following error:

Launching the openHAB runtime…
Error initializing storage for Equinox container.

Not sure what to do next.


You might need to verify 1) If your Java version is matching prerequisites 2) disk write permissions to your openHAB home directory.

Not sure how it works under Windows nowadays, but same message appeared:

I got it working. I had installed the wrong version of Java. Thanks for your response.
