Are you using JRE or a JDK? I remember there was an issue with some version of 4.2.x where starting the server with just the JRE wasn't possible.

I recommend that you use JBoss AS 4.2.3 (if you want to stick with 4.x series). Also what's the output of:

First I wnna answer your questions:
Are you using JRE or a JDK?

I am using JDK 1.5.0.
I don't know how to find the output of
echo %JAVA_HOME%

I tried
echo %JAVA_HOME%
on the dos prompt. It gave
as string output .
However, I have found the solution: if I remove the option from in the run.bat, I get the server running. As well as I got the server running with eclipse IDE without any changes to run.bat(...yayy).
I agree. Here's the link:
