I can't get the Elasticsearch service to start using the Windows service on a Windows 10 machine after upgrading to 8.4.3.. I successfully used elasticsearch-service.bat to install the service and see it listed as an available Windows service when I bring up services, but if I try and start it from there I get an error stating "Error 1607: The process terminated unexpectedly".
I then tried using elastic-service.bat to start the service and that results in an error message that states "ERROR: Failed starting 'elasticsearch-service-x64' service". I see the following message in the log files when using both methods:
2022-10-22 21:40:45 Apache Commons Daemon procrun stderr initialized.
Starts and stops the Elasticsearch server process for a Windows Service
-E Configure a setting

-v, --verbose Show verbose output
ERROR: quiet is not a recognized option
The weird thing is that the service starts fine if I manually run elasticsearch.bat from the elasticsearch\bin directory. Any one have any idea what the "ERROR: quiet is not a recognized option" in the log example is about and/or how I can get elastcisearch to automatically start as a service? Thanks.
