Lucee Express - Unable to run


#1

Hello,

I just downloaded Lucee Express to my local folder: C:\Downloads\CF\Lucee\Download\lucee-
4.5.1.024-express

After unzipping/extracting the files, double clicked “startup.bat”. But the window opens and
closes immediately.

Then I went to command prompt and cd to the directory where “startup.bat” exists and tried to
run/execute. I got the following message:

The CATALINA_HOME environment variable is not defined correctly
This environment variable is needed to run this program

Please assist.

Make sure your in the directory with startup.bat. If it doesn’t exist it tries to set the current directory.


#3

I am in the same directory. Please see below screenshot.


#4

That’s a different message than what you posted. You need to set the JRE_HOME to where your Java jre is installed.

After setting the JRE_HOME variable, it worked!

Thanks!!
