I tried creating a license.properties file and pasting in the key, but this results in "push back buffer full" error.
I have 16GB ram, I am not running anything else, quad core i7, 2TB 3200 MB/s nvme SSd, and gigabit network with 600Mbit symmetrical uncontested fibre. I have no proxy, vpn or filewall running (other than standard windows defender).
I have java 11 jdk installed and JAVA_HOME correctly set (so I can run mvn etc).

After some trial and error, I find that if I run the jar file in my downloads folder, without changing its name, it runs, and I get prompted for a browser login. I cant find the login details anywhere, but at least it "ran". If I follow the tutorial, and put the jar in the author and publish subfolders and rename them, they hang when launched.
I now have a license file at least, by not following the developer guide.
== update 2 ==
Running either of the renamed jar files results in hanging, with no progress bar appearing.
If I run the un-renamed jar file, I get a loading progress bar, followed by "http://localhost:4502 startup time 20s". If I then open chrome and go to this url, I get:
HTTP ERROR 503
Problem accessing /. Reason:
AuthenticationSupport service missing. Cannot authenticate request.
== update 3 ==
More trial and error. I redownloaded the quickstart.jar, but this made no difference and the size is the same.
I notice that if I run my author/aem-author-p4502.jar it hangs. If I delete author/crx-quickstart dir, but have the correct and valid license.properties file along side the jar in the author dir, and try to run the jar, I always get "Fatal error: IOException Push back buffer is full". I have 10GB free ram, and around 1TB free disk space on the ssd. it does create the crx-quickstart dir however. Then if I run the jar again, I dont get the push back buffer full error, it just hangs.
However, this fails, and in the log file it creates we see the same error as double clicking on it:
java.io.IOException: Push back buffer is full
MAIN process: shutdown hook
MAIN process: exiting
Note, MaxPermSize is not relevant for java 11.
== update 5 ==
Tried rebooting, deleting quickstart dir, running quickstart again, get same "Push back buffer is full" error message the first time, then hangs the second time.
== update 6 ==
Although oracle java 11 is on the official AEM 6.5 supported list, I installed Oracle 64 bit java 1.8, deleted the crx-quickstart dir, and ran the jar again. Got the exact same "push back buffer full" error.
