ES 5.0.1 doesn't work with Jre x86 on Win x64


Good evening, :snowflake:️ ElasticSearch team :snowflake:️ !

I have a problem:
Why I can't run elasticsearch.bat on Windows 10 x64 with jre1.8.0_111 x86? After some research I found out that bin folder doens't have server folder and requires it. Could you handle this situation?

Old 2.4.1 worked fine!

Thanks in advance

Just use docker

You may be did not follow the guide on how to install that on Windows?
I think you have to remove existing service if any first.


I don't want to use it.


Where can I find anything about this service in ?
And why it's working with 2.4.1?
JRE x64 fixed this problem but it was nontrivial case.

So you mean that JDK 32 bits does not play well but JDK 64 bits works well?
May be you can open an issue and report that?

I don't see anything obvious saying that only 64 bits versions are supported:



No, JRE 32 bits doesn't play well but JRE 64 bits works well. JDK is NOT JRE.

It was closed

Me too and it's my concern.

It will run fine if you remove or comment out the -server line from the jvm.options file.
