I invoke hudson like this: java -jar WindowsHudson.war
The initialization seems to happen but could not see "INFO: Hudson is ready." message.
When I tried to open localhost:8080, i could not.
Java is installed and java -version gives:
java version "1.6.0_45"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_45-b06)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.45-b01, mixed mode)
I tried running Hudson on a different PC, it worked. Both PCs are running Windows 7.
Sorry for the late response. WindowsHudson.war was the war file i downloaded first (from Hudson website, i think. I do not have the link now).
I checked Hudson's page, and the downloadable file is Hudson.war. The latest war file does not throw any errors and starts smoothly.
I have a failure log of WindowsHudson.war and i will find and paste it.
