Error when attempting to run the broker service via command line.

1. Runthe Broker as a Java application (Not a service) from a command line, to establish whether the problem is in the application or just with running the service:

Run net start OpenLM Broker on the command line.

-NO log file is created, since the service does not run the application.

This is running the Broker as a Java application, not as a service.

java -jar C:\Program Files\OpenLM\OpenLM Broker\OpenLMBroker.jar

start C:\Program Files\OpenLM\OpenLM Broker\broker.xml

In this case, this procedure succeeded. This means there is a problem only with the service and not the application.

a. Open the registry editor : type regedit in the start command line.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\OpenLM Broker

c. check that you have a Parameters key, with an Application name.

C:/Program Files/Java/jdk1.6.0_25/bin/java.exe -Xrs -jar C:\Program Files\OpenLM\OpenLM Broker/OpenLMBroker.jar start C:\Program Files\OpenLM\OpenLM Broker/broker.xml
