Adobe sent me the AEM 6.5 quickstart jar and a key.


As per these instructions: https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/experience-manager-learn/foundation/development/set-up-a-loc...


i created the author and publish dirs, copied in the quickstart jar and rename them aem-author-p4502.jar etc.


Adobe dont supply the required license.properties file, and after some searching I find it is supposed to create it on first launch.


Anyway, when I run aem-author-p4502.jar it creates a crx-quickstart dir, opens a window saying "starting quickstart on port 4502" then does nothing.


if I hit https://localhost:4502 nothing is there (connection refused).


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).

Anyone have any ideas how to fix this?


== update 1 ==

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:


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.


== update 4 ==

Adobe support kindly suggested doing this:


    author>java -XX:MaxPermSize=256m -Xmx1024M -jar aem-author-p4502.jar


However, this fails, and in the log file it creates we see the same error as double clicking on it:

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.
