thread232-1177512: jvm.cfg corrupt error

I came across this thread posted a while back. I did a .car deploy from a QA box on my localhost. Then, I couldn't start CF application server. After looking at windows event logs, I noticed some errors.

When I looked at coldfusion-out.log file, I noticed the following error :

Error: no known VMs. (check for corrupt jvm.cfg file)

How I fixed it?

1. I checked my java home and java environment variables to make sure they are pointing to the version I am using and paths were valid.
2. I opened up C:\ColdFusion9\runtime\jre\jvm.config file and realized that it had a wrong path for java.home. Once I changed the path, I was able to start my CF server.

Here is my path below.


# VM configuration
# Where to find JVM, if {java.home}/jre exists then that JVM is used
# if not then it must be the path to the JRE itself

Hope it helps to someone who might struggle with this issue.
