  6. Jithin Joy RedPheonix November 9, 2016 at 10:09 am

    In the first screen, you are running java from JRE directory . It should be JDK directory.

    In the second screen you missed the -jar option. It is (java.exe -jar )

  9. Jithin Joy RedPheonix November 9, 2016 at 8:56 am

    not working at all

    i changed the javahome to cjava jdk too. still no solution

    i reinstalled 8.1 windows on another laptop. it is also having same problems.

    when double clicking its showing the error image i first uploaded and when running cmd its showing unable to access the jar file. i havent changed the java home in the new laptop

    Installer is taking ‘program’ as a directory instead of ‘program files’ because of space in the folder name.

    Simply solution is copy your jdk1.8.0_102 directory to C: drive. Execute the installer again like c:jdk~binjava.exe -jar .jar

    Also the command is java.exe not javaw.exe.

    What is your Java version? Try execute the WebLogic from full Java path like below

    c:Program FilesJavajdk1.8.0_65binjava.exe -jar fmw_12.
