I always get the below error while I try to run the author instance jar:


I have all the dependencies (JAVA_HOME, PATH etc) set on environment variables, but still facing the issue.

Adobe AEM version -> 6.2

Please help me on this. Let me know if you need more details.

Did this used to work or stop working?

This error usually comes up when the JAR file is corrupted. We'd suggest you to check if the JAR file corrupted.

FYI: You can check if your JAR file is corrupted using one of the following ways:

1) When you try executing "java -jar cq-author-6.2-4502.jar" from command line, you should see an error indicating that your is corrupted in stderr.log file.

2) You can extract the contents of AEM JAR file using 7-zip and verify if "Main-Class: com.adobe.granite.quickstart.base.impl.Main" is part of META-INF/MANIFEST.MF file.

Hope this helps!
