Hi,

Quickstart is a jar file and it doesn’t start on double-click if some other program has hijacked the jar file extension i.e. when we install JRE on Windows system, the file “jar” should be associated with javaw.exe and if any other program like a zip utility is installed, that utility modifies the association of jar file and when you double click on quickstart jar file, instead of starting the server it just opens up the file or does nothing.

In order to fix this problem, you can right click on the quickstart jar file and in the context sensitive menu go to "open with" and select Java(TM) Platform SE binary. If this option is not visible in context sensitive menu, click "Choose Program" and browse to <Java_Home>\jre\bin\javaw.exe and select Java(TM) Platform SE binary. Then check “Always use selected program to open this kind of file” and click on OK.

This should fix the problem and you should be able to start the server with just a double click on jar.

If the above step doesn't work, alternatively quickstart can also be started from command prompt. For more information on this, please refer:
