Hey guys. Recently I've been attempting to make a minecraft Bukkit server on Windows 8.1. I have a 64 bit operating system with Java 7. This is the code I am putting into my batch file:
@ECHO OFF
SET BINDIR=%~dp0
CD /D "%BINDIR%"
"%ProgramFiles%\Java\jre7\bin\java.exe" -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar
PAUSE

And this is my response:

C:\Users\Harrison\Desktop\Bukkit Server>java -Xmx1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar -o t
rue
'java' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

C:\Users\Harrison\Desktop\Bukkit Server>PAUSE
Press any key to continue . . .


And yes, I have selected the entire output and pasted it into the thread, so it's 100% legit. No screenies required. Can anyone help? Does anyone know a solution? Pls reply asap. Just remember, windows 8.1, java 7 and 64 bit operating system.

Do you have JDK/Java added to your PATH?

Try to re-install lava? And check java.com for more info about this problem.

try putting just this into your WHATEVER.bat;
java -Xms1024M -Xmx1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar -o true

Dunno lol. Could you check for me and re-write the code so it would potentially work?

Update: Just reinstalled java, but to no avail. I've reinstalled, used the same code, and I also used java -Xms1024M -Xmx1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar -o true but it still didn't work...
Any suggestions?

easiest workaround will be renaming your bukkit as minecraft_server. and just using
the file path provided for vanilla server on minecraft.net. it always works

None of the above comments will work ;) You need to add Java to your enviromental PATH on your PC. I can't check for you because only you can, since I don't have access to your PC (Don't be lazy :P). Code is fine though.

This means Java is not added in the PATH system variable I can tell you what to do but thats editing the core of the system 1 wrong move and its bye bye windows :P

oh and btw if you are thinking of setting up a permanent server on win 8.1 youre about to do a terrible mistake.
