windows installer manual startup.bat path

Description

As per email discussion - the windows installer startup.bat generated by NSI is no longer functioning.

Windows exe-installer creates a startup.bat file that does not start. For some reason the batch file must be run from GEOSERVER_HOME, not from GEOSERVER_HOME\bin. I am remembering that change to jre8 had this effect with older Geoserver versions as well.

Adding "cd .." manually fixes the issue:

After fixing the launch file Geoserver starts. Login fails still from some pages, for example from About GeoServer with the familiar error
Problem accessing /geoserver/web/wicket/j_spring_security_check. Reason:
Not Found

Once logged in from the main page things seem to work. One small glitch:
Go to workspace settings, check Settings-Enabled
-> Enabled box gets covered by the title Primary Contact and can't be unchecked. Tested with Firefox 45.0.2.

I am assuming the above feedback is from windows installer with manual option.

Trying the installer with the manual run option on windows 7 ... and it works for me with no changes required to the path (see attached screen snap).

Works with recent Geoserver versions (2.10, 2.11, 2.12-beta) but I can't say exactly since when.
