the run.bat file starts off with a syntax error but continues to run. somewhere halfway, a lot of exceptions are thrown and all the services get undeployed. a pipe to a txt file does not work
c:\run.bat > output so i am unable to provide exact outputs, however the run.bat file is as follows :

@echo off

I had similar problems too. The problem line seems to be:
If you remove this line (or rem it out) and change this line:
"%JAVA%" %JAVA_OPTS% -classpath "%JBOSS_CLASSPATH%" org.jboss.Main %ARGS%
"%JAVA%" %JAVA_OPTS% -classpath "%JBOSS_CLASSPATH%" org.jboss.Main %ARGS%
everything should be fine.
You need to SET JAVA_HOME=c:\j2sdk1.4.1_03 or to where ever your SDK is and ensure you have enough environment space.
Also it will not work with sdk 1.3 but will with sdk 1.4- I(I have not tried any of the in-between versions).
I agree. Here's the link:
