I downloaded the bukkit software and made my RUN.bat in the notepad, but when I double click the RUN file the CMD window pops up literally for a fraction of a second and disappears. Obviously, without the console I can't use server commands to make my character an OP or to shut the server off. Once the server is running, the only way for me to turn the server off is for me to restart my computer. The server is on due to the fact that i double clicked the "craftbukkit-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT" but aside from the fact that I can join via minecraft, I have no idea if the server is even on or not. Is there a way for me to get around this problem? I run on Windows 7 with Java 1.6.0_14 (64-bit as far as I know) Am I running the server with the correct startup information? I'm curently using: (this is what the wiki told me to use) "@ECHO OFF SET BINDIR=%~dp0 CD /D "%BINDIR%" "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe" -Xincgc -Xmx1G -jar craftbukkit-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar" Am I using the correct thing or am I forgetting something? Or is this not the problem and something else is? Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated and I want to apologize ahead in advance if I did not make to much sense in my details and for the fact that i don't know my computer terminology very well.
