SCM installation problem on Windows 10

Hello I am baffled by a faulty installation on Windows. Thus far I’ve tried to reinstall Java and update the jdk environment variable with no success. Here is my log.

Hello njdewaal

It seems that resolving the JAVA_HOME environment variable is a problem. The Windows service runs with elevated privileges, so it tries to resolve JAVA_HOME from system environment and not from user environment.

Could you please try to either set a JAVA_HOME variable in your system environment or explicitly set the variable in your scm-server.xml?

<env name="JAVA_HOME" value="C:\Program Files\Eclipse Adoptium\jdk-" />
