    Hi Burt,

    Fixed. This turned out to be due to a error in configuring the JAVA_HOME environment variable.

    I had set JAVA_HOME to “dir C:\software\Java\jre6″ which generated the above error. By changing it to “dir C:\software\Java\jre6″, the installer picks up a different tool to implement the jar command.

    I’m guessing there should be a “-” in front of “uvf” in the oozie-setup.ps1 script. It’s a switch to the Jar command, right?
