I have XP, just downloaded JMeter and clicked on jmeter.bat and it started up no problem.

Does your system meet the requirements described in
JMeter User's Manual: Getting Started and in the README in the jmeter directory? First requirement is to have a fully compliant JDK1.3 or higher installed, preferably 1.4. jmeter.bat expects the jdk/bin directory to be on the path.

When you click a bat file like that and nothing happens you can open a command window and run it on the command-line and you are more likely to see an error instead of having nothing happen.

Hi Jas,

From your err message, looks like your physical memory (RAM) is too low to run JMeter. Increase your RAM or close off ALL unnecessary services/program

Hi,
I am still having trouble with getting JMeter to run from the .bat file on my Windows 7 computer. I get the error "'java.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
errorlevel=9009
Press any key to continue . . .".
I have jdk6 installed. I feel like I have followed all the instructions I have found on just about every website out there. I still get this error! Anyone have any ideas? Am I a complete idiot?
(that's entirely possible but I am good at raising chickens, using diatomaceous earth and cooking with iron skillets).
I am about to beat my computer with a shovel. Please help.

I had the same problem with Win 7. i copied the java installed path and copied it to environment variable path in the Advance system settings..
1. Copied "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.7.0_01\bin" this path
2. Right click Computer --> properties --> Advance system setting --> environment variables
3. In the system variable section select path and then paste the above copied java installed path following with ";"

it working fine then

I too am having trouble using jmeter. I think its because my laptop is 32 bit and jmeter requires 64. Anybody have a link for 32 bit jmeter? Thanks.
